A message from Peter Kissinger, President and CEO of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety:
In order to solve the distracted driving problem, each of us must evaluate our own performance, and accept the full responsibility that a license to drive entails. In some cases, this may mean that we need to educate ourselves about concerns we were unaware of, such as the fact that "hands-free" doesn't mean "risk-free." In other cases, though, our research shows that many of us really do "get it," but need to shift from an attitude of "Do as I say, not as I do," to one of "leading by example." This requires honestly assessing whether our attitudes are consistent with our behaviors, and holding ourselves to the same standards we apply to "the other guy."
