why is distracted driving increasing
Why is distracted driving increasing?
  • Technology is becoming more advanced and more portable
  • We live in a fast paced world where we like immediate gratification.
  • This generation does not like to be bored!
it s not about where your hands are but about where your focus is
It’s not about where your hands are, but about where your focus is…
  • It is still just as dangerous to talk on a hands free device
  • There is a difference in talking on the phone and talking to a passenger in the vehicle, it has been proven less dangerous.

so you re a good texter
So you’re a good texter?
  • It does NOT matter if
    • You text fast
    • You don’t have to look at the phone to dial or text
    • You consider yourself a “good” or “experienced” driver

Cell Phone Driver vs Drunk Driver
  • “The relative risk [of being in a traffic accident while using a cell phone] is similar to the hazard associated with driving with a blood alcohol level at the legal limit."   
  • 699 motor vehicle accidents. 24% of these were using their cell phone within the 10 minutes of the accident.

    • More rear-end collisions.
    • Longer reaction times
    • Shorter following distance
    • Longer acceleration times
  • Drunk Drivers:
    • neither accident rates, reaction time nor recovery of lost speed following braking differed significantly.
  • Overall, drivers in the alcohol condition exhibited a more aggressive driving style. 
proposed solutions
Proposed Solutions
  • Change people’s driving behaviors
  • Implement and enforce stronger traffic laws
  • Continue to research and advance technology

Distracted Driving Contract

I promise to do my part to help reduce or end distracted driving by pledging to be a safer driver. I will:

___ Not text while I am driving

___ Not text while driving and will use only hands free calling

if I need to speak on the phone while I am driving.

___ Not text or use my phone while I am driving. If I need to

use my phone, I will pull over to the side of the road.

I will ask other drivers I know to eliminate or reduce distracted

Driving habits.
