You know phones and driving don't mix. Find out why. Come to our Distracted Driving Summit at Evanston Township High School (1600 Dodge Avenue, Room N112) on Wednesday, April 13 from 2:30 to 5:30 pm.
Greet Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White and test the multi-tasking fallacy with driving simulators provided by AAA Chicago. Hear the stories of our panelists, Jennifer Smith (FocusDriven [www.focusdriven.org]
) and David Teater (National Safety Council
), and understand how cell phone use induces cognitive impairment.
Learn how to minimize distraction, risk, and liability from our experts, Mary Clark (Northwestern University, Traffic Safety School), Evanston's own Doug Whitmore (American Defensive Driving School
) and Sergeant Thomas Moore (Evanston Police Department).
The Evanston Distracted Driving Summit is free and open to the public.
Please don't drive while inTEXTicated.
