Safe Grad Nite was initially started by a committee of concerned parent who wanted to help prevent personal injury and deaths on a statistically dangerous night for high school graduates.

Leading Causes of Grad Night Injuries

The leading causes of teenage injuries and deaths on graduation night are related to underage drinking and driving, drowsy driving, distracted driving and not buckling seat belts in case of an accident.

At Glen Lerner Injury Attorneys we wish to congratulate each high school graduate on their accomplishment and wish them the best in their future endeavors. We also want to strongly encourage them to be safe and responsible as they celebrate with their family and friends.
