In 2009, Crooms Academy of Information Technology, located in Sanford, lost one of its teachers in a car crash caused by distracted driving. This loss motivated students at Crooms to take a stand against texting while driving. The next year, they formed Reynold’s Right Hands, an organization aimed at instilling safe driving behavior in the community.
Now, that organization has grown into a nonprofit corporation, and on Saturday, May 19th, 2012, the organization will hold the first-ever statewide Distracted Driving Youth Summit.
The Summit will be held at the AAA National Office in Lake Mary. The day will be filled with numerous activities, driving simulators, breakout sessions, and more. The National Organizations for Youth Safety, The Allstate Foundation, AAA, SADD, and AT&T are also helping to sponsor the event.
If you want to attend the Summit, it’s not too late to register! Visit the “Reynold’s Right Hands” Facebook page for more information. Our Treasure Coast auto accident attorneys urge all Florida drivers to stay focused while driving.
