The Law Offices of Steven M. Sweat, APC, a Los Angeles personal injury law firm is delighted to announce Brittany Jackson as the winner of the firm’s 2015 Steven M. Sweat Annual College Scholarship Essay Competition. The Steven M. Sweat Annual College Scholarship Essay Competition provides a $1,000 scholarship prize to help current or prospective college students meet the rising costs of college tuition.

The 2015 Annual College Scholarship Essay Competition asked contestants to discuss how lawmakers could strengthen current laws prohibiting cell phone use while driving and what additional measures could be pursued to increase safety on the road. In her winning response, Ms. Jackson proposed:

·      Punishing texting while driving in a manner similar to the way many states punish drunken driving;

·      Coupling the increase in penalties and sanctions for texting while driving with public awareness efforts funded with donations, grants, and sponsorships; and

·      During an investigation for impaired or distracted driving, permitting law enforcement officers to view the date and time of the driver’s last text message.

Ultimately, according to Ms. Jackson’s essay, changing drivers’ attitudes about texting while driving and promoting a culture of safety for all who use the nation’s roadways may begin with legislation but will only come about through community participation and individual commitments to safe driving.
