Atlanta Accident Attorneys Sponsor 9th Safe America Foundation SafeTeen Georgia Driving Academy


May 08, 2014

The Atlanta personal injury law firm of Montlick and Associates is proud to sponsor the ninth annual Safe America Foundation’s 2014 SafeTeen Georgia Driving Academy, Saturday, May 10, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. at the Cobb Galleria Centre, 2 Galleria Pkwy SE, Atlanta, GA. The event will provide the opportunity for hundreds of teen drivers, age 16 to 19, to learn about safe driving practices while participating in hands-on activities that allow teens to learn in a safe environment. The event allows teens and their parents to obtain valuable information about safe driving from emergency medical responders, fire personnel, police officers, traffic court judges and driving safety experts as well as legal tips and advice from the experienced car accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates.

Because the Atlanta car accident attorneys at Montlick and Associates are sponsoring the event, parents can register their teen for the event free of charge by using the Montlick Code: MONO2F at the Safe America registration site. Parents who use the code will get in free with additional free admission of one child. ($20.00 savings). Tickets for additional participants are $10 per ticket.

The annual event provides an opportunity for teens to gather information and obtain training in safe driving practices by engaging in fun activities. The events this year include:

  • Simulated driving activities that mimic impaired driving while wearing "fatal vision goggles"
  • Almost two dozen safe driving exhibits
  • Driving simulator activities that include a distracted driving course and evaluation of teens knowledge regarding braking and other driving skills
  • Mock traffic stop with field sobriety tests and an arrest followed by a hearing in front of a Traffic Court Judge
  • Legal tips and advice on protecting your rights if you are in a crash caused by a negligent driver

The experienced Georgia auto accident lawyers at Montlick and Associates will also conduct an Accident Instruction Workshop that will provide guidance on the steps teens should take if they are involved in a collision. The workshop will specifically address what teens need to do to protect their legal rights if they suffer injury in a collision caused by another driver.

Montlick and Associates is deeply committed to this event because we know that the first year that teenagers have their driver’s license is the most dangerous year of their lives. According to the results of a study reported by the chairman of the Governors Highway Safety Association, one state found that teens who participated in drivers education outperformed teens who did not participate in a driver training program in the following ways:

  • 20 percent fewer conviction for driving offenses
  • 12 percent fewer collisions
  • 50 percent fewer suspended licenses

David Montlick, CEO and Founder of Montlick and Associates, explained, “We see the heartbreaking anguish that parents experience when their teen suffers life changing injuries or dies in a Georgia auto accident. This is an opportunity for us to help keep our teenagers safe and prevent such tragedies.”

Montlick and Associates is proud to sponsor this event which is designed to help keep teens safe. Montlick and Associates have been representing those who suffer serious injuries throughout all of Georgia and the Southeast for over thirty years, including but not limited to Albany, Athens, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Gainesville, Macon, Marietta, Rome, Roswell, Savannah, Smyrna, Valdosta, Warner Robins and all smaller cities and rural areas in the state.
