Distraction & Reaction
A Prevention and Awareness Program Addressing Distracted Driving
In recent years, the dangers of driving distracted has gotten
much attention. In fact, according to Distraction.gov, drivers
are 23 times more likely to crash if driving distracted. At
SmartDrive, we have addressed distracted driving in its variety
of forms since our inception in 2004.
This year, thanks to strong support from our sponsors, we
are proud to offer — FREE OF CHARGE — to schools and
community events, our Distraction and Reaction program to
help drive home the dangers of distracted driving in a
meaningful way. Using an online component students can do
themselves, combined with a film, ‘Driven to Distraction II”,
created by DuPont’s Coastal Films and donated exclusively to
SmartDrive, we teach participants about the science of distracted
driving. Then, using a Gem golf cart, we prove the
science by allowing participants to drive on a coned course
distracting them with time constraints, talking on a cell
phone, excessive passengers and finally, texting.
This program is safe, fun, and most importantly, educational.
We raise awareness by proving the premise, that distracted
driving is every bit as dangerous as driving under the
The program takes approximately one hour, and we work with
our organizations to adapt the program to fit whatever venue
is available — health classes, driver ed classes, assemblies, or
community days — the program delivers results and raises
awareness like no other program can. It is an ideal program to
offer during Prom Season or at the beginning of the school
year to make a critical impression on our drivers.
