Helping prevent distracted driving

Distracted driving is a prevalent issue on our roads, claiming thousands of lives each year. It takes only a moment of distraction—from a phone, the stereo, or a conversation—to irreversibly change lives. Together, we can help prevent these tragedies by pledging to drive attentively.

Explore the resources below to learn more about distracted driving and the potentially life-altering consequences you and others on the road could face if an incident occurs.
