Distracted Driving Summit Will Research Solutions

Distracted driving is a serious danger to everyone on the road. On the 29th and 30th of September, Drive Smart Virginia will have its 4th Annual Distracted Driving Summit.

Janet Brooking, Executive Director of Drive Smart Virginia, says distracted driving is reaching epidemic proportions in the Commonwealth and nationwide.

It is obvious why texting is dangerous and experts say drivers on their phone miss up to 40% of their visual environment but there’s more.

The Summit is aimed at exploring cutting edge solutions to save lives.
