Part of our outreach is making our research and information available to local news organizations. Often they do not have the time to compile the latest statistics for a relevant distracted driving story so, they reach out to us for this info. We do not charge them for our services but your donations help us continue our efforts and to make appearances when requested.
Thank you for your support. Here are link to our latest interviews.

Lori Moore Show (12/27/16
Distracted driving is characterized by texting, talking, reading, sending emails, and taking selfies has reached epidemic level on our roads and highways. The CDC reports that the U.S. had the highest crash rate compared with 19 other industrialized countries. Fatal crashes were up 9% thru June (693 in MI).
Aggressive driving also on increase. For many drivers, tailgating speed limits, stop and yield signs have become just suggestions instead of the rule. Also increasing are pedestrian, bike, and motorcycle crashes. WHO estimates that there are over 1,000,000 deaths per year, globally due to distracted and aggressive driving. Driver habits and attitudes have to change to reduce the carnage we are experiencing.
This book provides a comprehensive overview with some ideas to help solve the problem.
