Aspiring engineer awarded a scholarship for producing a video promoting safer driving standards

DALLAS, TX, September 19, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Law Offices of Loncar Lyon Jenkins presented Muhammad Faizan Farhat with its annual $2,500 Distraction-Free Driving PSA Scholarship. Muhammad, a third-year mechatronics engineering student at Kent State University, earned the scholarship by creating a short video that highlighted the possible dangers of driving while distracted by phones, music, or eating.

The two-minute video that Muhammad posted on Vimeo depicts him driving to a friend’s house without paying attention to the road, which results in a car crash. Throughout the drive, he showcases ways one can engage in distracted driving, such as texting, eating, and playing loud music. “In life, we do not get second chances. Put away your phones, do not eat or lower the music, and drive slow,” Muhammad says.
