22 Attempts to Curb Distracted Driving

From Paranoid Parent Apps to Blood-Spurting PSAs

— May 13, 2010 — Autos
We all know that distracted driving increases the risk of accidents. That fact is increasingly jammed into our thoughts due to many laws banning cell phone use while driving. Yada, yada, yada--right? Why is it then that we keep doing it? We answer that "really important call" from that "really important person." Why are we still driven to distraction on the road despite our knowledge of its risks?

These gadgets, ads, hands-free laws, apps and PSAs attempt to proactively curb your distracted driving. So it’s one less thing sidetracking you from a safe ride.
