Teens Against Distracted Driving (TADD) is an awareness program started by the Anderson Law Firm to alert high school students about the dangers of not having full attention when they get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Here's how our latest TADD project works: I supplied six different high schools in Tarrant County with pledge cards to sign an agreement to not text while driving. Once the student signs the agreement in return receives a flashy orange bracelets that reads: I PLDG 2 NT TXT N DRV. The six schools that are participating include: Haltom High School, Central High School, Colleyville Heritage High School, Richland High School, South Hills High School, and Northside High School. The school that receives the highest percentage of students to sign the petitions will receive a $500 donation from me to use at their discretion.
The main reason I am raising awareness about distracted driving, is because drivers are becoming less and less aware of what other cars are doing and more and more worried about checking to see who wrote on their facebook wall. Our culture no longer has to wait and get home to get the phone number to Dominos pizza, instead we can just simply google it on our phone while entering the address in our GPS and still manage to drive 70 MPH. Don't get me wrong, I love all these new gadgets that continue to evolve, but I absolutely hate how many lives are being ruined. I have a true passion to educate people and want to help in any way I can. I hope every student that signs a pledge and wears the bracelet thinks about the true meaning of distracted driving.
