Admit It to Quit It: End Distracted Driving Scholarship Contest

In Florida, a Teen Driver is Killed in a Car Crash Every Four Days.

According to data from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles[1], teen drivers were involved in 288 fatal crashes in 2018. Those crashes resulted in 759 teens suffering serious bodily injuries and 88 deaths.

Distracted driving is leading factor in crashes overall, and among young drivers it is especially deadly. In 2017, 7% of all people killed[2] in distracted driving accidents were between the ages of 15 and 19.

It’s beyond debate that distracted driving is dangerous. It’s up to each individual to make the commitment to put an end to their own distracted driving habits. But before you can put a stop to any behavior, you must first admit the existence of the problem, which is why for our 2021 undergrad scholarship contest we asked students to do just that.

Admit it to Quit It: End Distracted Driving Scholarship Contest

We want to put an end to distracted driving among your drivers. Toward that end, the Port Charlotte car accident attorneys at Abrahamson & Uiterwyk offered a $1,500 scholarship to undergrad students.

Scholarship Contest Overview

We asked students to write an essay of 500 to 1,000 words admitting to their most common distracted driving habits, and to describe specifically how and why they intend to put an end to those deadly habits.
