ABC Needs to Drop the "A" Word
Crashes caused by distracted driving are not "accidents." Read the story and tell ABC to Drop the "A" Word in the comment section. Copy & paste the following:
"Accidents are unpredictable. However, drunk, drugged, and distracted drivers are much more likely statistically to be involved in a crash. In other words, they are predictable. Thus, labelling them as accidental is incorrect. For this reason, please use terms that more accurately reflect the realities of such occurrences, such as crash, collision, and wreck."
Just Drive: Enable Airplane | Drive Mode
We are asking mobile device makers to change "Airplane Mode" to “Airplane | Drive Mode” and we need your help!
1 out of every 4 car crashes in the United States is caused by cellphone use while driving. What if there was a way to prevent it? What if you could simply enable "Airplane | Drive Mode" before you get in your car?

At any given time, there are 660,000 vehicles being driven by someone using a handheld device. These people are three times more likely to get into a crash. Are our smart devices making us dumb drivers?
Drugged driving is the new drunk driving: It’s just as serious and just as deadly. So why don’t our attitudes reflect this?
Even with tougher laws, drunk drivers still kill 30 people every single day in America. About one-third of these drunk drivers are repeat offenders. How can we protect ourselves and our loved ones from these serial perpetrators?
