New Jersey Distracted Driving Lawyers: Miss New Jersey Helps Raise Awareness about Distracted Driving
Driving while texting or talking on the phone may seem harmless, but the one second it takes to look down at your phone could result in a tragic accident. Miss New Jersey, Lindsey Giannini, has made it her mission to spread the word about this issue, which she made known during her onstage interview at last month’s Miss America preliminary competition. Her pageant platform, “Dangers of Distracted Driving,” was a standout speech at the 2016 Miss America pageant.
Giannini began her speech by saying that 15 people are killed each day due to distracted driving. She hopes to bring attention to this issue by supporting Nikki’s Law, which was established after Washington Township high school student, Nikki Kellenyi, was killed by a driver who her parents believe was distracted at the time. The law states that signs must be posted that remind drivers to put down their phone while driving. Widespread awareness of this serious issue can mean fewer unnecessary deaths.
