Distracted Driving Update from the Traffic Safety Guy

From: David Wallace <trafficsafetyguy@cox.net>
Subject: Distracted Driving Update


This week’s Highway to Safety podcast episode continues the focus on Distracted Driving in a conversation with Russ Martin at AAA.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and this episode is part three of a four-part series examining distracted driving, and what we need to do to be safer drivers. Recent research of cognitive distractions found a person’s mental focus does impact driving. Russ Martin Manager of State Relations at AAA discusses the research, what it means and provides tips on how you can be a safer driver. (You can find it at www.highwaytosafety.com/DD3 or click on Russ’ name.)

If you missed the last two episodes on Distracted Driving, they include an interview with NTSB Board Member Robert Sumwalt (www.HighwaytoSafety.com/DD1) and Dr. Paul Atchley, Professor at Kansas University and expert on how the brain interacts with driving (www.HighwaytoSafety.com/DD2)

Next week I will wrap up the series with Mr. Joel Feldman of EndDD.
