A Nationwide Initiative to Curb Distracted Driving with Connecticut Leading the Way

Connecticut is one of only two test-sights for the federal Distracted Driving ( campaign (New York is the other), a national initiative to work across the spectrum with private and public entities to tackle distracted driving. The US Department of Transportation has taken the vital first steps – The President’s Executive Order has established a new way to approach driving: by putting your device down and paying attention to the task at hand.

US Transporation Secretery Ray LaHood Leading the Charge

“Distracted driving is a major initiative that we are undertaking across the country, and one that we believe will make our roads significantly safer,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood.  “Decades of experience with drunk driving has taught us it takes a consistent combination of education, effective enforcement, a committed judiciary and collective efforts by local, state and national advocates to put a dent in the problem.  Efforts like this one will help us put an end to distracted driving, and we encourage your support of this program to help save lives in your community.”
