Distracted Driving – A Public Health Epidemic

On #GivingTuesday, November 30, 2021, people all around the world will come together to transform their communities. Will you be one of them? Give today to help end distracted driving and help us work towards safer roads for all.

Why Support Distracted Driving Efforts

Officially, more than 3,000 Americans die each year due to distracted driving. Unofficially, that number could be closer to 20,000. Described as an epidemic, this public health issue needs to be addressed.

Launched in September 2021 by National Transportation Safety Board Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg, the National Distracted Driving Coalition is accelerating national efforts to eliminate distracted driving fatalities and injuries.

A first-of-its-kind in the United States, the coalition combines leadership from the private and public sectors with the goal of developing a national strategy to combat distracted driving.

Together for Safer Roads is proud to help address the dangers of distracted driving by being on the steering committee of this powerhouse coalition that consists of the National Transportation Safety Board, American Trucking Associations, the National Safety Council, and others.
