Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects everyone. According to statistics from the National Safety Council, motor vehicle fatalities are up six (6) percent from 2015. More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation's roadways in 2017, with distracted driving being the major contributor.

From texting or talking on cell phones to dashboard infotainment systems to evolving voice command features – all pose a threat to everyone's safety. It takes is just one second of your attention to change a life forever.
