Driver distraction is a factor in about 4 million motor vehicle crashes in North America each year. CAA believes that the rise of habits that constitute distracted driving, in particular texting while driving, is a serious concern. We need the same sort of push on texting and driving that made drinking and driving unacceptable two generations ago.

Jeff Walker, CAA National’s VP, Public Affairs, talks about the issues and dangers of distracted driving on CBC’s The National.
