Distracted Driving is Dangerous, States GEICO Campaign

by | Apr 19, 2021

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and GEICO, based in Chevy Chase, MD,  released a campaign to remind drivers to stay focused on the road, put their phones out of reach and use features like Do Not Disturb and/or apps that silence alerts.

A GEICO release states that according to the Governors Highway Safety Association, “despite fewer drivers on the road, there were more pedestrian fatalities during the first six months of 2020 than during the same period in 2019. Their analysis cited potential causes – such as increased reckless driving – leading to the rise.

“To better emphasize the safety benefits of using your phone’s Do Not Disturb feature, GEICO’s celebrity friends, including Billy Blanks, the Harlem Globetrotters, Martins Licis, Lisa Loeb, McKayla Maroney, Tag Team and Dick Vitale, have a few new, important messages to share in their latest videos.

“While these videos are fun, the message is clear: distracted driving is dangerous driving.”
