About the Loncar Lyon Jenkins Distraction-Free Driving PSA Scholarship
Every year, young drivers and passengers lose their lives in car crashes that were the result of distracted driving. Cell phones are one of the top causes of distraction. When teens talk or text on the phone while driving, they put themselves and others at risk of injury or even death.
At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we want to be part of the solution to this tragic problem. By raising awareness through the scholarship and video PSA, we hope to help reduce the number of distracted driving accidents.
There are many campaigns out there trying to address this issue. We know that young people tend to listen to people their own age, which is why we are honored to offer this Distraction-Free Driving PSA Scholarship.
