Accident Prevention

Driving is our most dangerous daily activity. Car crashes are the number one cause of death in the U.S. for ages 1-44.

Drive Focused, Not Distracted

Driving while distracted multiplies the risk of crashing 3-23 times. Driver distraction injures almost 400,000 people in the U.S. annually.

Three types of distracted driving:

  1. Manual – hands off the wheel
  2. Visual – eyes off the road
  3. Cognitive – mind off the driving task

Texting while driving incorporates all three distraction types, and increases your risk of crashing by 23 times, making it four times more dangerous than drunk driving.
