Drive Safe. Drive Present. Lead by Example.

Distracted driving is a dangerous and common occurrence on today’s roadways. Cell phones and texting are part of the problem, but any activity that diverts attention from driving presents a risk. With roadway fatalities increasing, the Travelers Institute® Every Second Matters initiative recognizes that every driver, passenger and pedestrian has a role to play in changing social norms around distraction. Help drive change by speaking up, setting an example and empowering others to drive and walk present.

The study also reported that even hands-free devices involve manual-visual tasks at least half the time, which is associated with a greater crash risk.
