Just Drive: Take Action Against Distraction

Mind on Driving | Eyes on Road | Hands on Wheel
Talk/Text Later

Swedish Medical Center's Injury Prevention Program offers Just Drive — Take Action Against Distraction to promote safe and responsible driving on Colorado roadways.

What is the problem?

Research has shown that talking on the phone while driving increases the risk of collision four times, while texting increases crash risk by 8 to 23 times. Consequently, the National Safety Council estimates that 26% of collisions in 2013 were attributed to cell phone use while driving. Distracted driving now joins alcohol and speeding as a leading cause of motor vehicle injury collisions.

"Just Drive" is a free one hour class delivered by safety experts available to businesses and organizations in the Denver Metro Area as part of employee safety and wellness programs.

What will employees learn?

  • Risks associated with driving distracted
  • Consequences distracted driving can have on one’s life emotionally, physically, and financially
  • Practical strategies for reducing distracted driving habits and influencing others
  • Distracted driving laws in Colorado

What are the potential benefits to employers?

  • Demonstrate concern for employee health and safety
  • Reinforcement of agency cell phone policies
  • Safer employees on the road, both on and off the job
  • Contribute to improving safety on Colorado’s roadways

Just Drive is funded by a grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation and Swedish Medical Center. Program developed by TREDS (Training, Research and Education for Driving Safety).
