April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month! This year's mock trial fact pattern was based on distracted driving, so we're encouraging our Mock Trial Coaches and Students to share the importance of NOT driving distracted. One call, one text, one glance away from the road is all it takes to change, or take, a life forever. Don't Drive Distracted! #JustDrive
