The distracted driving numbers continue to rise. Peggy and Phil Renaud, executive director, The Risk Institute and Brittany Shoots-Reinhard, senior research associate, Dept. Of Psychology, Ohio State University, talk about the increase in traffic fatalities and what it is doing in response.

They also discuss:

  • Four pillars it will focus on in 2021: encourage employers to adopt policies; encourage teachers to dedicate time to distracted driving; educate the public on the dangers; and in Ohio modernize the law.
  • If parents are ill-equipped to teach driving skills to children today.
  • How research and simulators can work with students to make them aware of the risks out there.
