"Could It Wait?" Scholarship
Driving is a dangerous activity under the best of circumstances. Accidents happen on brightly lit, well-maintained roads to alert, focused drivers, so it’s no surprise that distracted driving significantly increases the risk of an accident. In particular, studies show that texting while driving increases the risk of a car accident by 23 times. In order to combat the texting while driving epidemic, the auto accident lawyers at Kapuza Lighty are offering a $1000 scholarship to interested students.
Kapuza Lighty Scholarship Essay Contest Overview:
- Submit a 500 word essay that answers the following questions:
- What was the most recent text you sent while driving?

- Use the remainder of your essay to compose the message you would’ve sent if you’d known it would be your last.
