Thousands die needlessly each year because people continue to use their cell phones while driving, handheld or hands-free. Join the National Safety Council this April, for Distracted Driving Awareness Month, in urging those you care about to:

  • Stop using cell phones while driving
  • Recognize that hands-free devices offer no safety benefit
  • Understand the dangers of the cognitive distraction to the brain
  • Tell others about the dangers of cell phone distracted driving
For more information, please visit the NSC's website

At the 2014 FMI Asset Protection Conference, David Teater, Senior Director of Transportation Initiatives, was one of the highest rated speakers at the conference.  His presentation touched on how important it is to give your full attention to the act of driving and not allowing yourself to be distracted with cell phone use.  He finished the presentation with his personal experience that drove the point home to all attendees.  To view David's presentation, please click here.
