Each year communities in Maine are devastated by tragic accidents, often involving teenagers.
At the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, we see firsthand the end results and the pictures they paint are never pretty.
Drinking and driving has long been a problem throughout Maine and across America. Teenagers have heard about the dangers, yet it continues to happen on a regular basis. Too often it takes a tragedy for teenagers to realize the inherent dangers of drinking and driving, but by then it’s too late.
Today, more than ever, drivers are distracted despite the 2019 Maine law banning mobile phones and electronic handheld devices while driving. Cell phones, GPS devices, tablets and laptop computers are ubiquitous, along with other dangerous distractions such as eating, drinking, brushing teeth and applying makeup. All are equally dangerous when driving and all are distracting to the task at hand: getting from point A to point B safely.
In an attempt to put an end to teenage drinking and driving and teenage distracted driving, the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein is asking high school students to take initiative and showcase their innovation.
We want graduating seniors to help send the message to their peers: “Stay Safe – Arrive Alive!”
If you’re up to the challenge and think you have a message that will resonate with your family and friends, enter the Arrive Alive Creative Contest today. Your entry will not only win you fun prizes, it may also save the life of a friend or loved one.
High school students have their whole lives ahead of them. Don’t let a single moment or mistake get in the way of your future plans. And most importantly, don’t let a single moment or mistake make you a statistic.
