Put down the phone and pay attention: April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. According to NSC, more than 700 people per day are injured in distracted driving crashes. People struggle with so many distractions while driving – whether it be texting, changing the song on the radio, setting the navigation, putting on makeup, and more. It may only take a matter of seconds to cause a life-threatening accident.
Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys is honoring delivery drivers across the state to raise awareness during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all formed a new appreciation for our essential workers across the state, including delivery drivers. According to CCJ, commercial drivers drive an average of 7.4 hours a day, and 81% of them believe that distracted driving is increasing.
To show our appreciation for our delivery drivers across the state, we are giving away SIX $200 Amazon gift cards and SIX Car Mount phone holders to increase their safety while driving. We have chosen Jarvis Brookshire, Gordon’s neighborhood mail carrier, as the first winner of our April giveaway. However, we need your help nominating the remaining 5 winners! Help us by nominating a delivery driver in your life – whether it be your waste collector, a food delivery driver you know, parcel delivery driver, a freight driver you know, or even an Uber driver you know, nominate them to show your appreciation!
Here’s how it works!
- To nominate a driver, comment on our pinned Facebook post by April 26, 2021, at 1 p.m. CST.
- In your comment, tell us the driver’s first and last name, the type of driver they are, and the area they work in.
- Each comment will count as 1 entry. For an additional 3 entries, comment on any pictures or videos you have of your truck driver going above and beyond.
- We will randomly select 5 of the nominees to win our contest!
