Every Second Matters Symposium

When You're Distracted, Who's Driving?

36,750 people died on U.S. roads in 2018.  And in 2017, more than 2.7 million people were injured.  Policymakers, law enforcement and victims' families point to distracted driving as an important contributing factor.  

Join us for dinner as we explore research into why we drive distracted, and learn how new technology and insights from psychology can help combat distraction and save lives.
