Bryan, Texas — Texas personal injury firm Daniel Stark recently partnered with nonprofit Allie’s Way to bring attention to the dangers of distracted driving during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. 

Allie’s Way was founded by Jaime White, the mother of two-year-old Allie White, whose life was tragically cut short by a distracted driver using a cell phone while making a turn in a parking lot. The mission of Allie’s Way is to educate the public about the risks linked to distracted driving behaviors, including texting, calling, and any other activities that divert someone’s attention from the road. Daniel Stark is one of several partners of the Allie’s Way initiative, working together to share Allie’s story and advocate for safe driving practices across the country. 

“Daniel Stark and Allie’s Way share a lot of the same core values. At Daniel Stark, fighting for car wreck victims is what we do. We want to keep people safe on the road and shine a light on how devastating distracted driving crashes are,” said Linda McMillan, Public Communications Director at Daniel Stark. “If you take your focus off driving for even a second, you can change someone else’s life forever.” 

Despite the statewide ban on texting while driving in Texas, distracted driving collisions are widespread. Individuals who text and drive are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash. This heightened risk stems from the inherent dangers associated with cell phone use, whether hands‐free and hand‐held. Using a cell phone can significantly delay a driver’s reaction time—comparable to operating a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08%

Allie’s Way outreach efforts include collaborating with advocacy groups, sharing victims’ stories in courts and Department of Public Safety offices, and participating in podcasts and media interviews. By partnering with Daniel Stark, Allie’s Way seeks to grow its following and strengthen its distracted driving advocacy. 

“Our firm serves so many Texas communities, and we wanted to use our platform to honor Allie and spread the word about how big of a problem distracted driving is,” shared McMillan. “National Distracted Driving Awareness Month was the perfect time to help and remind everyone that we need to drive without distractions year-round.” To support Allie’s Way’s in advocating for safe parking lots near child-frequented areas, visit
