Cantor Crane Safe Driving Scholarship

The purpose of our scholarship is to raise awareness against driving under the influence and distracted driving.  We are offering is a $1,000 scholarship to law students that take the pledge of driving safely by (optionally) downloading the Uber app and DriveSafe.ly App.  We are asking students to take a pledge to not get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol and to not text while driving.  We have teamed up with the UBER® App and the DriveSafe.ly® App in providing a resource for safer driving.  The DriveSafe.ly app helps keep the driver’s hands on the wheel and not texting while driving.  We just saw on the news recently about SnapChat and distracted driving can cause serious accidents.  Our pledge is to ultimately raise awareness. We have directly teamed up with Uber on this venture and will also be giving a $15 credit for those that take the pledge.
