Cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.
One in four accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving.
An estimated 400,000 people were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver.
Don’t become a statistic!
Deery Collision Center has joined forces with the NABC® to put the brakes on distracted driving. From GPS to cell phones, entertainment screens, rowdy passengers and more, just one quick glance from the road can result in a dented fender, damaged bumper or worse.
The new NABC® Drive Out Distraction program is helping educate drivers and their passengers about reducing the dangers of distracted driving with a national campaign that focuses on:
Preparing for the road trip by downloading directions, checking weather and traffic conditions, setting the radio station and familiarizing yourself with the vehicle controls
Reducing cell phone distractions by setting devices to “do not disturb”
Eliminating in-car interruptions by securing pets, buckling in children and reminding passengers not to distract the driver with inappropriate behavior
