The Sawaya Law Firm Delivers Driving Safety Handbooks to Denver High Schools for Second Year in a Row


The Sawaya Law Firm has been practicing personal injury law for forty years. In that time, we have seen the devastation of auto accidents first hand, and represented clients who were involved in accidents that shouldn’t have even occurred.

Teens have an elevated risk of being involved in auto accidents. Most auto accidents are preventable. That is why we partnered with CDOT and local high schools for a second year in a row to raise awareness about driving safety, and providing resources that facilitate the development of safe driving habits.

Our Safe Driving Handbook addresses both sides of the new driver equation – helping teens understand the privileges and responsibilities that come with driving a vehicle, and educating parents and adults on their duties as safe-driving role models. We provide…

  • Step-by-step instructions for driving lessons
  • Tips on tackling distractions
  • A pledge that both teen and parent can take, promising to drive safe and free of distractions.

It’s all here – download your free copy today!

We recently delivered 500 copies of our Safe Driving Habits handbook to local high schools. East High School, and George Washington were the first to receive them. We also dropped off 500 Accident Recovery Kits as gifts to the high schools.

The Accident Recovery Kit contains useful items to assist you if you are in a car accident.

  • The disposable camera can take the place of a broken cell phone.
  • A flashlight may be necessary depending on the time of the accident.
  • Writing down insurance information, license plates, and descriptions of your surroundings and injuries will be easier with our Auto Accident Guide and pen.
  • Gathering your belongings is easy with our large plastic bag w/handles.

East and GW high schools have taken the pledge to practice good driving habits, and so can you! The Sawaya Law Firm is committed to reducing accidents on the road, sponsoring free cab rides for holidays, and taking an aggressive stance against distracted driving the latest hazard to Colorado drivers. We’re honored to have the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) as a publishing partner, and their quote on our handbook says it all –

“When your teen is in the driver’s seat, parents are far more than just passengers. The role of parents is to steer their teen driver through the dangerous first years of driving when most crashes occur. It’s important for parents to take an active role … and your teen may someday thank you for it!”
