Metzger Wickersham joins the campaign to end dangerous driving behavior:
Scholarship Contest for high school seniors stresses dangers of drunk
and distracted driving
In an effort to make our roads safer, Metzger Wickersham law firm has pledged
its support to help spread the message that distracted drivers and drunk
drivers are not only a danger to themselves, but everyone else on the road.
Metzger Wickersham is hosting its first annual
Arrive Alive contest which encourages teens to enter a creative project that sends a memorable
message to their peers about the dangers of drunk driving and/or distracted
driving. First place winners in the contest receive a new laptop computer
and everyone who enters receives other prizes for their effort. Entries
are being accepted through May 17, 2013.
Pennsylvania accident attorneys hope that the contest is successful in educating teens to practice safe
“An alarming number of young people think it’s okay to text
or talk on the phone while driving, or have a few drinks and get behind
the wheel — but tragedy after tragedy shows that these actions can
have deadly consequences,” said Metzger Wickersham attorney
Young drivers may be especially vulnerable to drinking and driving and/or
texting and driving, because they do not have enough driving experience
to fully understand the dangers of their behavior.
Campaigns that educate the young about dangerous driving are vital to our
community. If teens learn about the perils of drunk driving and distracted
driving, they will hopefully think twice before engaging in risky behaviors
and many young lives could be saved.
