Distracted Driving

Driving is a complex task that requires the attention and concentration of the driver. Driver distraction is a leading factor in crashes in Minnesota, accounting for at least 25 percent of all crashes annually, resulting in at least 64 deaths and over 230 injuries. Making the commitment to safe driving is an integral part of this campaign and employers can use the resources and campaign incentives to drive home their concern for the safety of their workforce while on the road.
