The Hands Free Law Has Teeth

February 25, 2020

Minnesota Department of Public Safety released data on how the new hands-free law in Minnesota has performed since it went into effect on Aug. 1, 2019. As of Dec. 31, 2019, that is in five months, a total of 9,727 drivers received citations for violating the law. That amounts to little over 60 a day. It is disheartening to see 60 individuals every day in the state refusing to respect law of the land. Please know that Minnesota does not…

Leading From The Top

November 1, 2019

In my last column, I described how the Shreya Foundation’s (shreyadixit.org) teen-led Distraction-free Life Club (DfLC) at Eden Prairie High School has been spreading the message of distraction-free driving through peer-to-peer influence. The same column also mentioned how the DfLC teens reached beyond high school, embarking on a project named Drivers-in-Making for elementary school kids, engaging them in discussions about distracted driving. It will be the DfLC team coaching young kids. After reading the column a friend questioned me about…

DRIVERS-IN-MAKING

October 23, 2019

Written by: VIJAY B. DIXIT, CHAIRMAN Summer of 2019 is history. The Fall session is in full swing at schools. A new Hands-free Law is active in Minnesota. Troopers from the state patrol are much better equipped to enforce the law. Hopefully, the hands-free law will lead to lower cell phone inspired distracted driving episodes. It surely did take away the self-proclaimed right of drivers to use cell phones as socialization/entertainment tools. Granted that only a thorough analysis of long-term…

A decade away from a driver’s license, these kids are already learning safe driving habits

August 21, 2019

The members of Eden Prairie High School’s Distraction Free Driving Club are big fans of peer-to-peer education. Usually, that means other teenagers, but on Aug. 14, 22 high schoolers taught a different audience about safe driving: elementary schoolers. “The kids are our peers, our younger peers,” explained Saathvika Yeruva, co-president of the Distraction-Free Driving Club. She and her classmates spent the morning at Oak Point Elementary School in Eden Prairie playing games, drawing and doing trivia with 15 elementary school…

‘Trying To Save You’: Families Impacted By Distracted Driving Rally Around Hands-Free Bill

August 1, 2019

In less than two hours, Minnesota’s new hands-free law goes into effect. For drivers, that means buying accessories or changing habits, but for too many families, this is about much more. More than 500 people have died from distracted driving over the past 10 years, but state lawmakers failed to pass the law year after year. Now, it’s those brokenhearted relatives who finally made it happen. “I’m not the only one who lost a child. I’m not the only family…
