Drive Safely Work Week™ (DSWW) is happening now from October 2-6!
The campaign, sponsored by NETS (Network of Employees for Traffic Safety), is designed to guide employers across the country as they encourage their employees to focus on safe driving. The campaign is about eliminating distracted driving, reducing the risk of accidents, and saving lives.
As you probably know, distracted driving affects your reaction time and your ability to drive safely.
In 2015, nearly 3,500 people were killed in accidents involving distracted drivers. At least 14% of these accidents involved cell phone use, although the actual percent is probably higher due to underreporting.
Crashes also cost employers billions of dollars each year. In 2013, vehicle crashes cost employers over $37 billion. In a 2015 NETS report, distracted driving alone cost employers over $8 billion. In addition, vehicle accidents cost employers over 1.6 million of lost work days.
NETS offers the following recommendations for employees across the country:
