The Mississippi State University student receives a $2,500 award.
DUBLIN, OH, April 16, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Mississippi State University student PCK (who wishes to remain anonymous for privacy reasons) is passionate about developing safer roads. As she explains in the essay that won her the Bressman Law Safe Roads Policy Scholarship, PCK’s grandfather was killed by a drunk driver in the 1960s.
“My dad never knew his dad and so I’ve thought a lot about how drunk driving impacts people and families,” PCK told representatives of Bressman Law.
To win the scholarship, PCK developed a four-point plan that she believes could be crucial in increasing public safety on the nation’s roads. Those four points include massive funding of infrastructure based on the latest research, introducing more government accountability measures, more aggressively campaigning for safe driving practices, and developing cars with advanced safety features.
PCK’s proposal draws heavily from advances made in many European countries, which have higher safety standards than the U.S. in many cases. “The $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill is a first step in repairing the U.S. transportation system,” the student writes. “But for roads to be safe enough to decrease deaths, a complete overhaul is needed.”
When not thinking about how to make our roads safer, PCK is studying to become a veterinarian. Her plan is to eventually make a living performing research or specializing in orthopedic veterinary medicine.
