April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

  • Calls Kill​​

    Eighty percent of American drivers believe hands-free devices are safer than using a handheld phone. But that is just not the case. More than 30 studies show hands-free devices are no safer because the brain remains distracted by the conversation. When talking on a cell phone, drivers can miss seeing up to half of what's around them, such as traffic lights, stop signs and pedestrians.​

    Take the Focused Driver Challenge and pledge to drive cell free.

  • Take the Pledge to Drive Cell Free
