Wolf Administration Reminds Drivers that Putting Down Their Phones and Focusing on the Roads Can Help Save a Life

Pennsylvania Insurance Department (PID) Acting Commissioner Michael Humphreys, Department of Transportation (PennDOT) Acting Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration Mike Keiser and Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) Lieutenant Adam Reed urged Pennsylvanians to enable the setting on their cell phones that silence text and email notifications while driving, to help reduce crashes caused by distracted driving. Statistics show highway deaths, including pedestrian fatalities, and insurance rates have risen consistently since smart phones were introduced to the market.

"Distracted driving is a serious safety hazard and Pennsylvanians should consider that distractions extend beyond just texting and driving," said Humphreys. "Everything, from changing the radio station to eating, that causes a driver to take their attention and eyes away from the road or their hands off the wheel is a distraction."

Speakers include:
Michael Humphreys, Acting Insurance Commissioner
Mike Keiser, Acting Deputy Secretary for Highway Administration
Lieutenant Adam Reed
