Our firm hosted a scholarship contest in 2018 to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to help young people pursue a higher education.
Do you think that the growing use of apps like Snapchat has contributed to a rise in distracted driving? If so, what can we do to stop people from using these apps while they drive and, in turn, prevent distracted driving accidents?
We received many applications for this scholarship. The following are the 3 winners.
