Are you addicted to talking on the phone while driving? Do you text or check email from behind the wheel? Then you are a distracted driver. Distracted driving caused more than 3,300 deaths in 2012, and though cell phones and in-car “infotainment” systems aren't to blame for all of them, they account for a growing number of accidents that happen because drivers are busy doing something else while behind the wheel. David Teater, senior director of the National Safety Council, will discuss how to keep drivers focused on the road instead of on texting, emails and social media.
