Think You Know All About Distracted Driving? Think Again.

April is National Distracted Driver Awareness Month and the new statistics are alarming...

With more technology now than ever, driver distractions have risen to unprecedented levels. We live in a world where people expect instant, real-time information 24 hours a day, and those desires don’t stop just because they get behind the wheel. Drivers simply do not realize – or choose to ignore – the danger they create when they take their eyes off the road, their hands off the wheel, and their focus off driving. distracted_driving

People often say, “I can do two things at once. I’ve memorized where the numbers are on my phone, so I don’t have to look.” Or, “Sending or reading one text is pretty quick – that should be okay.” They couldn’t be more wrong.

In 2012, 3,328 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver. One of the most alarming and widespread forms of distracted driving is cell phone usage. According to a Carnegie Mellon study, driving while using a cell phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent. And a report from the National Safety Council found that people talking on cell phones or sending text messages cause more than one out of every four traffic accidents

Here are several more eye-opening statistics provided by the National Security Council:

The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) launched two separate online surveys targeting commercial driver input on critical impacts from the hours-of-service (HOS) rules and detention time impacts on safety and productivity.

The first on HOS impacts is a continuation of the driver data collection first reported in the November 2013 ATRI release, Operational and Economic Impacts of the New Hours-of-Service Rules, which said that more than 65 percent of drivers surveyed had reported loss of pay, with more than 50 percent reporting a pay loss

Welcome to my new blog series, #WhyDAWednesday. In this series, I’ll share some information about why it makes sense to work with Driving Ambition…and obviously, I’ll share this on Wednesdays. 

For this first blog it only makes sense (to me) to highlight what I believe to be one of Driving Ambition’s greatest strengths – its company culture. There are several attributes that make a company great – benefits, pay, etc – but culture trumps these every time. Most people will agree that working with a company where you feel respected and appreciated is vital to retention, and that’s how we roll at Driving Ambition.

Be Prepared For Potholes With These Safe Driving Tips

pothole safety tips


Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it's all right

 

When George Harrison of the Beatles penned the lyrics to "Here Comes the Sun" in 1969, there was no way he could have predicted how long and tough the winter of 2014 could have been, nor the impact of the weather on the nation’s highways or driving behavior.

The icy grip of this winter’s Polar Vortex has helped create potholes, large cracks and generally deteriorated road surfaces. The constant freezing and thawing of water under the pavement weakens the road and, when combined with the weight of vehicles driving over, eventually lead to poor road surfaces and even more hazardous driving conditions. 


As you drive in areas that are more prone to potholes, here are a few safety tips:
