According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there were 34,247 fatal crashes in 2017, in which 37,133 people were killed.  

Of those fatalities, at least 3166 people died in distraction-related crashes.  

Despite years of research and increased awareness, the scourge of distracted driving is not going away, and younger drivers are at risk.

There’s simply no safe way to use a cell phone while driving!

A recently updated white paper published by the National Safety Council concludes that even hands-free driving is unsafe.  

“Understanding the Distracted Brain: Why driving while using hands-free cell phones is risky behavior” includes references to dozens of scientific studies and reports that describe how using a cell phone, either hands-free or handheld, requires the brain to “multitask,” which cannot be done safely while driving.  

The research shows cell phone use while driving impairs driving performance and weakens the brain’s ability to capture driving cues.  Read the report here.

Take the pledge, get a wrist band.
I pledge to not text or use my cell phone while driving. I understand the serious dangers caused by distracted driving and will talk to my family and friends about these dangers, to help make the roads safer for everyone.
