At Lutz, Shafranski, Gorman & Mahoney, P.A. we know safe driving literally saves lives. That’s why we are passionate about encouraging safety on the roads. Driving has always had its risks, but now with the invention of smartphones and other electronic devices, we are more at risk than ever. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) data states that in 2019, distracted driving was a reported factor in 8.5% of fatal motor vehicle crashes. In 2018, 25% of the distracted drivers involved in fatal crashes were young adults aged 20–29.
Statistics like these show us how important it is to remain alert while driving, especially for young adults who are more at risk. That is why we have decided to offer a $1,000 Yellow Light Scholarship to help encourage citizens to learn from their experiences on the road and to promote awareness of the dangers of distracted driving.
Like many things, when it comes to driving, the more you drive the more you experience. We are interested in hearing about a time when you had a learning experience while on the road. What could you have done differently? What did you learn and how has it affected your driving since? We want to hear your story.
The recipient of the Yellow Light Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
To be eligible for this scholarship, candidates must have emailed their full application (including the essay, resumé, and transcript) to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 30, 2021. Any applications sent after this date will not be considered.
Scholarship applications should be sent with the subject line “Lutz, Shafranski, Gorman & Mahoney – 2021 Yellow Light Scholarship Application.”
Thank you for your interest in our Yellow Light Scholarship!
