Distracted driving can change lives, and we're keeping our employees safe by enacting a new policy to ignore mobile phones while driving.

There are lots of tactics you can use to become a safer driver, but the best one may be being present and attentive.

Each day more than 1,100 people in the U.S. are injured in accidents reported to involve a distracted driver in the U.S.

To help keep our employees safe on the road, it's our policy to ignore our mobile devices while driving for work or in company vehicles. Instead, when we need to take a call or answer messages, we find a safe place to stop and do so.

Even hands-free devices may be distracting – and we don’t want to take that risk. It may be slightly inconvenient, but it’s more important that our employees arrive wherever they’re going safely.
