Roadway Safety Scholarship from Stanger Law- If you are concerned about distracted driving, then this scholarship might be for you.
When you get your driver’s license, a new world of freedom opens up to you. Suddenly, you can drive to meet your friends at the park, visit your favorite drive-through restaurant, and take yourself to school.
With this newfound freedom comes more risk and responsibility, though. Teenagers are four times more likely than adults to get into a car crash; one of the most common causes of these crashes is distracted driving.
Distracted driving is any activity that takes the driver’s attention away from the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration deems texting and driving the most alarming distracted driving activity. Other causes of distracted driving are eating or drinking, changing the radio station, and setting a navigation system.
Thankfully, there are steps that you can take as a new driver to increase your safety on the road. We encourage you to research safe driving habits and implement some of these practices in your own driving. One college-bound, trade school-bound, or currently enrolled student will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship for sharing their driving safety research and reflection.
