(Atlanta, GA) The Atlanta personal injury law firm of Butler Prather LLP, through its injury prevention partnership with the Shepherd Center, encourages all drivers to remember to focus on the road during Distracted Driving Awareness Month and throughout the year. Butler Prather LLP are proud to co-sponsor the Shepherd Center’s Reasons Campaign.
While many campaigns to stop dangerous, distracted driving have focused on statistics related to serious and fatal accidents caused by a texting driver, the Reasons campaign encourages everyone to think of why it is important to arrive safely at their own destination. Whether it’s something big, like a high school graduation, or something small like a favorite tv show, it is your reason to drive to and arrive safely at your destination.
“It may be fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies. It may be snuggle time with your kids. It might even be Taco Tuesdays. Regardless, the message is a very personal one,” explained the Shepherd Center’s Director of Injury Prevention, Bridget Metzger. Everyone is invited to share their own reason to stay focused on the road and personalize the campaign on The Shepherd Center’s Facebook page.
The Shepherd Center is a private hospital located in Atlanta, Georgia, that offers specialized treatment for those with spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. It is ranked among the top 10 rehabilitation hospitals in the United States, according to US News & World Report.
