Studies have shown that drivers overestimate their ability to multitask while being behind the wheel. Cellphone use while driving has become a serious public health threat resulting in thousands of automobile accidents and deaths annually. Speaking with students about the topic is almost like speaking to a wall, because some students and adults feel that reading a text and/or responding takes precedence over their lives. This is a huge problem for lawmakers and individuals who are found engaging in distracted driving and the consequences associated with looking away from the road for a split second. We’ve created several Family Feud style surveys that deliver safety tips to drivers and how to drive defensively against drivers who text while driving.
All of our shows may include trivia style questions, pictures, improvisations and audio to compound the dangers of texting while driving. Remember, the ultimate goal of any awareness program is to not only educate but to encourage positive behavior.
