According to insurance statistics, distracted drivers are responsible for almost 80 percent of all car crashes and 65 percent of near-collisions in the United States.
This DVD helps students and other viewers steer clear of the dangers resulting from driving while texting, talking on cell phones, eating, smoking, and other distractions. To convey its message, the program uses conversations with teens and college students who share their thoughts on the subject while driving instructors and other educators explore safe driving methods.
In addition, people with firsthand knowledge – such as emergency room personnel and car crash survivors – offer their cautionary advice.
