The National Safety Council (NSC) has recently released an article about distracted driving and ongoing efforts to reduce it, such as:
- Motor Vehicle Safety Laws
Motor vehicle safety laws have saved 12,713 lives in 2009. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association has several projects underway to reduce distracted driving. These projects are outlined in the agency’s Driver Distraction Program.
- Semitruck Crash-warning Systems
A technology designed to alert commercial truck drivers to threats—related to forward collision, lane departure and lane-change crashes—has been tested and proven to increase driver safety.
