The Travelers Institute held a conference on “Harnessing Psychology, Tech, and Innovation to Combat Distracted Driving,” on October 2, 2019, at the University of Cincinnati Carl H. Lindner College of Business. The awareness drive is a part of the company’s Every Second Matter education series dealing and exploring behavioral insights along with technological innovations to resist distracted driving.
As per a survey conducted by Travelers on 500 Cincinnati-area drivers, nearly 73% use their mobile device while driving including cases like fear of missing something important, to meeting family obligations that require constant attention, the urge to check their phones from time to time, or feeling it makes the drive go by faster.
The event was co-hosted by the Travelers Institute, Gamma Iota Sigma, and University of Cincinnati’s Carl H. Lindner III. and was graced by experts from various fields like Psychology, Transportation, Insurance, and others.
“Our events are an opportunity to help bring awareness to these effective tools and empower drivers to take simple steps to stay safe behind the wheel,” stated Joan Woodward, President of the Travelers Institute and Executive Vice President of Public Policy at Travelers.
