2020 Distraction-Free Life Calendars Are Here!

Screen Shot 2019-11-23 at 11.28.54 AM

In our Drivers-In-Making program last August, elementary aged students were asked to draw a picture to describe the dangers of distracted driving. The results were pretty remarkable.

 

So, we've compiled the drawings into the 2020 calendar and included anniversaries of loved ones lost to distracted driving as a daily reminder to drive distraction free. All proceeds from the calendars will go towards our education programs for kids of all ages.

 

Gift your loved ones this meaningful calendar for the holidays. Order your calendars today!

Distracted Driving Kills: Has a Track Record

July 17, 2019

Written by: VIJAY B. DIXIT, CHAIRMAN Do you agree with the above title? I do. Distracted Driving has been killing for a real-long time, though under different names. Also, impact of that tragedy does not ever fade away, it remains permanently etched in the memories of those left behind. To make my point I must tell you a story. Something terrible happened to a young boy named Jeff, many years ago. A group of kids started to drink, got into a…

The New Hands-free Law Needs a New Village

July 2, 2019

Vijay b. Dixit, Chairman Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation August 1, 2019 is the day when the new Hands-free Law goes into effect. Getting the Hands-free legislation passed only paved the way for a distraction-free driving future. Now we must make it work. Laws succeed only if they get support from an intelligently designed execution plan by the government. This week’s launch of the public education campaign about the law by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety is laudable. It…

June 7, 2019
driving by matheus ferrero

August 1, 2019 is the date when the new Hands-free Law goes live. That is great news. But I would personally like to add an informal footnote alert. Let us not assume that just because one uses a hands-free/Bluetooth enabled phone, one does not have to worry about distracted driving. Let us be clear. Hands-free is not Distraction-free. It is true that the new law addresses one of the major sources of distracted driving, i.e. using a handheld phone while…

May 21, 2019

We are working on changing the culture around distracted driving. Even though distracted driving is killing thousands in the U.S. every year, drivers continue to do it. And you’ve likely been in the car with someone who was distracted. Did you ask them to put the phone down? To save the sandwich for home? Or offer to find the perfect radio station so they can focus on driving? Imagine if you’re in the car on your phone and your friend…
