Pledge with Trimac to take #ActionAgainstDistraction

At any given moment, nearly 700,000 drivers are using an electronic device on our roads. A driver who is texting is over 23 times more likely to have an accident compared to an attentive driver; making texting 2.5 times more dangerous than driving while intoxicated. In 2019, this equaled 3,142 people killed by distracted driving.

Despite the grim statistics, the truth is we can’t control anyone’s actions other than our own. That’s why Trimac is reviving its Distracted Driving campaign. Today, we ask that you promise to hang up your phone, keep your eyes on the road, and do not call or text people who are driving.

We encourage you to join Trimac in taking the Action Against Distraction pledge. Tell us your name and who you are Taking Action Against Distraction for. Is it for your family? Your friends? Your son or daughter? The workforce on the roads? Tell us why and share this message with your family and friends.

Take the #ActionAgainstDistraction pledge.
