End Distracted Driving Initiative
Our End Distracted Driving Initiative is already generating a lot of positive buzz, but we still need your help to get the word out to local schools that might be interested in hosting an End Distracted Driving Presentation. We are also continually seeking out volunteers to visit high schools throughout Chicagoland to educate students on the dangers of distracted driving. Learn more here or fill out the volunteer application.
