Spence Team Stresses Importance of Bike Safety
Three members of the Spence team recently visited students in Cheyenne to discuss the dangers of distracted driving and safe biking.
In an effort to keep Wyoming roads and the families who drive on them safer, Spence partner and President of the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association (WTLA) Emily Rankin along with associate attorneys Mark Aronowitz and Noah Drew spoke to students at East High School in Cheyenne. Working in conjunction with the WTLA, the attorneys educated new drivers on how taking their eyes off the road for just a few seconds can have serious, even fatal, consequences.
Rankin, Aronowitz and Drew walked the students through three types of distraction — visual, manual and cognitive — and described the differences between a safe driver and a lucky driver. The attorneys also tried to empower students by encouraging other drivers to remain focused and speak up for their own safety as passengers. They told tragic stories of individuals who lost their lives as a result from just seconds of distractions in hopes of illustrating that it only takes a few moments to change or end a life.
Additionally, the team distributed bike helmets to third-grade students at Cheyenne’s Arp Elementary to reinforce the importance of safe biking practices.
