Featured Member News: "Because of Casey, I have..."

Because of Casey, we have... continued to seek ways to raise awareness of distracted driving, inspire advocacy, and to help prevent future tragedies from occurring.

The Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation created a video, "Casey Feldman: A Face of Distracted Driving."  This video, which features network site members Dianne Anderson, Brooke Burdge, Kelsey Butler, Katie Feeney, Janine Repka, and Melissa Zirolli, has been accepted by the U.S. Department of Transportation as part of their "Faces of Distracted Driving" campaign.

Please click here to view Casey's video  and view the stories of other faces of distracted driving.

Please also read U.S. Secretary of Transporation Ray LaHood's blog post on Casey's story and featuring Casey's father, Joel Feldman.

Click here to watch the TV news videos and read the media coverage about Casey's video which has been compiled on the Casey Feldman Memories site.

Please visit the new discussion forum on this site to share your thoughts on the video, and to learn more about the recently launched initative, End Distracted Driving- EndDD.org.

July 17, 2013, article in The Press of Atlantic City on the 4th anniversary of Casey's death: Ocean City Crosswalk safer after tragedy that led to Casey's Law

October, 2010: An article published Oct. 4, 2010 by The Press of Atlantic City, discussed the first test of the New Jersey's new state traffic law requiring motorists to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks. Please click here to read the article. Previously, the law stated motorists must "yield" to pedestrians. The meaning of "yield" was unclear, and Casey's parents worked with New Jersey legislators to clarify the law.

The new pedestrian safety law went into effect on April 1, 2010 in New Jersey and requires motorists to come to a complete stop and remain stopped for pedestrians in crosswalks, as well as for pedestrians crossing at intersections where there are no marked crosswalks. This is the first change in NJ law regarding pedestrian safety in more than 50 years. New Jersey is ranked number 1 in the nation in pedestrian deaths. Casey's accident was a catalyst in the change of this law.

Since statistics show a decrease in pedestrian deaths in N.J. in 2010, it is likely that Casey’s Law is already making a difference and saving lives!
