2012 Student Distracted Driving Awareness Campaign

Monday, May 21st, 2012

After Casey’s death, one of her colleagues on her college newspaper told us that Casey taught her that everyone has a unique story and if you listened carefully enough you would hear that story. Telling one’s story and having someone really listen and hear that story can be powerful and can change both the story teller and the listener.

The story of the EndDD.org/60forsafety 2012 Student Awareness Initiative is that a Philadelphia trial lawyer’s daughter was killed by  a distracted driver and more than 800 trial lawyers volunteered to speak out in her memory about distracted driving from Hawaii and California to Maine, Texas to North Dakota, Florida to Washington State and many of the provinces of Canada. When our first year’s initiative concludes, Casey’s story and the story of the senseless and needless loss of life from distracted driving, will have been told to more than 40,000 students. By telling Casey’s story and the stories of others killed by distracted driving, we have saved many lives. (more…)

Local presentations are presently scheduled for more than 20 high schools in PA and NJ and new locations are being added weekly.

Casey  graduated from Springfield High School in Delaware County, PA in 2006.  The Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation was established in her memory and is involved in pedestrian safety and distracted driving awareness education.
