BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — The time frame from Memorial Day to Labor Day is considered the '100 Deadliest Days,' a period that has seen the most deadly car crashes involving teens. Local law firm Chain Cohn Stiles has worked to bring awareness to the issue to help keep roads safe.

23ABC spoke with Jorge Barrientos, Director of Marketing and Public Relations, to talk about that and a new scholarship program.

Chain Cohn Stiles has awarded 11 drivers education scholarships to high school students as part of the new Guided Partners in Safety scholarship program. Each of the scholarships covers the $319 registration fee for training at the Kern Driving and Training School.
