History of the Foundation
Andy Pilgrim Foundation©
The Andy Pilgrim Foundation© is a 501c3 entity created by Andy Pilgrim in 2008. Andy started speaking to high school students in the mid 1990's as a give back project and continues to educate new drivers, parents and all adults.
The Andy Pilgrim Foundation’s mission is to educate new drivers, parents and all adults about the deadly problems associated with distracted driving. Driving experts drive distraction free because of what they know. Education is the key to driving knowledge.
The Foundation produced The Driving Zone 2© educational DVD and several PSAs in 2011. These educational tools have already been requested by driver education teachers and parents in 42 states.
Sadly, the problem of distracted driving continues to grow at an alarming rate.
It is no secret that driving collisions and crashes are the number one killer of teenagers; there are over 6,000 traffic deaths and 500,000 serious injuries of 13 – 19 year olds that occur every year on US roads.
The sad reality surrounding the increase in distracted driving behavior is this; 1 out of every 150 people in the US will now die in automotive collisions or crashes. The goal of the Andy Pilgrim Foundation is to help change these horrific statistics for the better.
The Driving Zone 2©
The information in Driving Zone 2© is completely up to date and not found in most driver education curriculums. The knowledge contained in the the DVD enhances the curriculum and provides teachers with vital information that all new drivers need to help them survive the critical early years of driving. The Driving Zone 2© has been picked up by thousands of parents & driver education teachers and helps supplement their mandated curriculums.
