GHSA, GM Expand Efforts to End Distracted Driving

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) and General Motors (GM) are advancing their work together to end the persistent and deadly problem of distracted driving by supporting innovative new ways to address this dangerous behavior. As part of GHSA and GM’s continued collaboration focused on changing the social norm, GHSA is awarding two grants to create and evaluate local distracted driving prevention programs in the District of Columbia (D.C.) and Washington state. A third grant is supporting youth journalists in diverse and underserved communities who will highlight how distracted driving endangers everyone on the road. Distracted drivers killed 3,522 people and injured another 362,415 in 2021, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). But the numbers are likely higher due to chronic underreporting. Distracted driving impacts everyone on the road, not just drivers and their passengers – and is especially dangerous for people walking, biking or scooting. Nearly one-fifth (644) of these deaths in 2021 were people outside a motor vehicle. While looking at or typing on a cell phone are the most common forms of distracted driving, it also includes eating, grooming, changing the radio or navigation system, engaging with passengers, reaching for objects in the back seat and other activities that take the driver’s mind and eyes off the road.
