According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, nearly 6,000 people died and more than 515,000 were injured on American roadways in 2008 in crashes that involved distracted driving. The problem is growing, and young drivers are most at risk.

KADD was founded by Scott D. Camassar and Stephen M. Reck of the Law Firm of Stephen M. Reck & Scott D. Camassar, LLC in North Stonington, CT, to help educate kids of all ages about the dangers of distracted driving. We’re dedicated to responsible driving and keeping kids safe. We don’t want to see kids injured or killed by texting and driving, or by others’ texting and driving. Please join us in this campaign, and go to and take the pledge today.

THE PLEDGE: "I pledge to not text or use my cell phone while driving. I understand the serious dangers caused by distracted driving and will talk to my family and friends about these dangers, to help make the roads safer for everyone."

Survey: 40% of Drivers Want Vehicles Wired for Internet

A new Autobytel "What's Hot Now?" report, Wired-in-the-Car, suggests that "distracted driving has the potential to exponentially increase" as consumers age 35 and under "increasingly hit the road with their iPhones, iPads and various other mobile Web-surfing devices."  The report also indicates that these consumers "have little interest in technology from auto manufacturers that improves the safety of having wired devices and built-in electronics in their new cars."  The report, based on a survey of consumers who visit Autobytel's network of sites, "indicates that drivers continue to be conflicted between their desire to be 'plugged-in,' with 40% overall wanting the Internet in their vehicles; their concerns about safety, with 87% believing in-vehicle Web access is a safety issue; and their actual behavior, with over 50% still admitting to, at some point, illegally texting/phoning while driving (even though 95% want the Internet banned or restricted in vehicles)."  Read more.
