Funds provide teen drivers with road safety empowerment tools to help them change driver behavior and save lives
Boca Raton, Fl., October 24, 2019 /Dori Slosberg Foundation/ -- The Dori Saves Lives Foundation announced today it was awarded a $60,000 grant to help reduce teen driver crash fatalities. The grant will enable the foundation to provide road safety empowerment resources for nearly 500,000 teen drivers throughout Florida.
"We've had the much-needed support of The Allstate Foundation for many years as we developed innovative approaches to educating and empowering teen drivers to reduce crash fatalities," said Irv Slosberg the foundations CEO. "The Allstate Foundation grants have helped us educate and empower both drivers ed teachers and student safe driving programs. These critical resources have had a huge impact on instilling safe driving habits in Florida teen drivers, and we're grateful for the continued support as we continually look to expand our impact."
Distracted Driving is plaguing our roadways and we are looking for solutions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted drivers killed 3,477 people and injured 391,000 in 2015 alone. Distracted driving has been elevated from a problem to a global epidemic.
Through our various events and programs across the state of Florida and our presence in Florida high schools enhancing driver education programs, Dori Saves Lives has become an influential force in the war against the crash injuries and fatalities our roadways produce. Our mission is to distribute the necessary tools that help everyone drive safely and end distracted and dangerous driving behavior.
