On Monday, March 7th, Consumer Reports and the U.S. Department of Transportation will host a teen distracted driving event entitled “Distracted Driving Shatters Lives: Helping Parents and Educators Reach Teens” at the Consumers Union headquarters in Yonkers, NY.
The event will feature Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, as well as victims of distracted driving, educators, advocates, and law enforcement. We will also announce additional findings from the Consumer Reports National Research Center survey on distracted driving as well as our nationwide efforts to reach parents and educators.
The event was streamed live on www.facebook.com/consumerreports with updates on Twitter @CRCars and @RayLaHood and live blogging on our Cars blog and on the U.S. Secretary of Transporation Ray LaHood's blog, as well.
