Driver Distraction in the Age of Automation
Wednesday, March 30, 2022 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET
Distracted driving is dangerous – full stop. Taking your eyes or mind off the road, or your hands off the wheel while driving, can significantly increase your crash risk. But what happens to driver attention when automated vehicles come into play? Will drivers adequately be able to focus on supervising the technology? Dr. Ian Reagan and Dr. Alexandra Mueller join us from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a leading authority on crash risk, to discuss IIHS’ new framework for rating partially automated vehicles and how well they help drivers stay focused on the road.
This program, kicking off Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, is being held as a part of the Travelers Institute Every Second Matters® distracted driving education initiative.
