Driving Safety Scholarship

The Ben Abbott and Associates Driving Safety Scholarship

Our Scholarship

Everyday At Ben Abbott and Associates, we witness the impact that the lack of driving safety awareness can have on the general public. We work devotedly to ensure that people who have been affected by motor vehicle accident receive the legal guidance they need.

Understanding road safety and your personal responsibilities when on the road, is paramount. For the safety of themselves and others, every driver has a duty to ensure they are as educated as possible with road regulations while operating a vehicle.

Beginning a collegiate career means more independence and responsibility. One of the most responsible qualities a person can have is to be an educated driver. We want to reward smart drivers like you!
