Disrupting Distraction

More than 37,000 Americans died on U.S. roads in 2016* - a staggering number.  Policymakers, law enforcement and victims' families point to distracted driving as an important contributing factor.  But so far, efforts to curb distracted driving have fallen woefully short.  With 94 percent of crashes involving human error, can brain science and psychology provide insights to dramatically reduce distraction-related roadway fatalities and injuries? Can technology play a role in solving the problem it helped to create? On Friday June 15,  2018 the Travelers Institute and the community explored the distracted brain and the most promising approaches to combat distracted driving.

Presented by the Travelers Institute, the National Safety Council, and the Road to Zero Coalition.
