Our addiction to cell phones has made distracted driving a national epidemic. State patrol officers who deal with crashes every day see the phone as the new “open bottle” in the car that makes drivers impaired and dangerous. Add phones and other devices to the many types of distraction we already face—from tuning the radio to drinking coffee behind the wheel—and we have a crisis. But this crisis can be turned back if drivers make the right choice, the safe choice.
One Split Second can help drivers make that best choice. This book is a one-of-a-kind resource that brings together real-life stories, facts and figures, fascinating research about our behavior behind the wheel, and expert perspectives on how we can end the distraction epidemic. It is a book no driver can live without.
This book is a call to action, written with heart.
