Sutliff & Stout have introduced the Sutliff & Stout Annual Scholarship Contest. The attorneys at Sutliff & Stout are proposing a programme to help young drivers avoid the crippling effects of distracted driving and raise awareness about it through the scholarship. This opportunity will help provide financial aid (eligibility). Applications are open to any individual who is enrolled on a university during the 2021 academic year. So, if you are a student who is currently enrolled in any course at the university and never shies away from doing what is right, this is an opportunity for you.
In-car accidents, young drivers are disproportionately killed. Automobile accidents are the leading cause of death among teens and young adults, especially those aged 15 to 24. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving killed 2,841 people in 2018, with 400,000 people injured in distracted driving accidents. Distracted driving is without a doubt a public safety problem. The issue is especially prevalent among young drivers. Though young drivers are not the only ones to blame, they pose a danger if they drive while distracted. We need to figure out how to put an end to distracted driving. Admitting that a concern occurs is the first step in modifying any action. Many of us are quick to judge others for their distracted driving behaviours, but how many of us are able to investigate our driving habits? Distraction-Free Driving Scholarship: The “First Step” is an initiative to aid this cause.
