  • In 2015 – 3,477 people killed and 391,000 injured in crashes involving distracted driving 
  • The fatal crash rate for teens is 3 times greater than for drivers age 20 and over
  • Driver distraction is responsible for more than 58% of teen crashes
  • Adults are just as likely as teens to drive distracted
  • Teens who see a parent driving distracted are 2-4 times as likely to also drive distracted 
  • Distracted driving crashes are grossly under-reported

 

Here’s what Partner Matt Devoti has to say about the ‘End Distracted Driving’ program:

“Distracted driving is a huge problem for people of all ages – not just teens.  We want people to be aware of the consequences whether it’s them, their relative or their friend who is driving distracted. The presentation offers eye-opening insight and concrete solutions to the problem that they can implement right away.”
