Jason Epstein, Seattle Car Accident and Personal Injury Lawyer and Founder of Teens Against Distracted Driving, was recently featured in an article on q13fox.com article about preventing teen texting tragedies.
Seattle, Wash. – June 15, 2010 – Seattle wrongful death and car accident lawyer, Jason Epstein, recently founded a safe-driving initiative geared towards teens called Teens Against Distracted Driving (T.A.D.D.) T.A.D.D. is a movement promoted by Jason and other car accident lawyers from around the country who are tired of seeing our kids being killed by texting and driving, or by others texting and driving.
Recently, Jason was the subject of an article featured on Fox News’ http://www.q13fox.com (Seattle/Tacoma) titled CRIME BUSTERS: Lawyer Dedicating Life To Preventing Teen Texting Tragedies. The article, written by Darren Dedo, highlights one of the country’s most dangerous growing trends – texting while driving – and how Jason is dedicating himself to educate teens on the extreme dangers of driving distracted.
Through T.A.D.D., Jason is traveling to numerous cities around the state of Washington, urging teens in Washington and across the country to be aware of the incredible dangers posed by texting and driving, one of the America’s fastest growing causes of auto accidents. Part of Jason’s speech includes a very graphic video that brings home the reality of how dangerous even a few seconds of having your eyes off the road can be. Jason is also urging teens to pledge not to text and drive, and help him spread the word. The following is an excerpt of the article:
At the end of each speech, Jason asks the kids for something back, a promise wrapped around each wrist.
It’s an orange bracelet which says in texting shorthand, “I pledge to not text and drive.”
He’s only been doing it a few months and already Jason has gotten hundreds of local teens to sign on the dotted line. Allison Adams signed up.
“Yeah, I signed the pledge, I have a bracelet,” said Adams, “So, I’m definitely keeping my phone on silent cause the thing does go off and you’re like whose texting me. So, it’s going to be put away from now on.”
At the Issaquah Community Center, Jason convinced all of the teens including Nick Ryder and Alexis Newman, to keep the phones down and their hands on the wheel.
“I just don’t think it’s worth it I mean in life, there’s so much more, more important things to do while driving like concentrating on the road,” said Ryder.
Jason also launched and operates the Teens Against Distracted Driving website, http://www.TeensAgainstDistractedDriving.com, where teens can the pledge not to text and drive. Each person who signs the pledge will receive a free T.A.D.D. awareness bracelet that they can wear to show their support for the cause. The bracelets read “I Pldg 2 Nt Txt N Drv.”
