With the emergence of cellular technologies, we have become more connected than ever before, and the use of these technologies while driving has become a deadly habit. We have written laws, produced public service announcements, and written company policies to deter distracted driving with limited success. This presentation looks at distracted driving from a different perspective. What is distracted driving? When are we most vulnerable to be distracted? What can we do about it?

Learning Objectives:
1. Examine the characteristics of distracted driving.
2. Identify the factors that leave you vulnerable to distraction.
3. Assess various ways to overcome distractions.
