2013 Midlands International Auto Show

Visit us at the Midlands International Auto Show, Centurylink Center Omaha, January 10-13, 2013

We are partnering with the Nebraska State Patrol to educate drives about the dangers of distracted driving.

What is "Distracted Driving?"
Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in that has the potential to distract them from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing. Distractions include, talking or texting on a cell phone, grooming, eating or drinking, changing radio stations, or talking to passengers.

According to National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHYSA),  in 2010, 3,092 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver and an estimated additional 416,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver.
