General Motors and GHSA are partnering to reduce distracted driving by providing research and resources to help the State Highway Safety Offices (SHSOs), their partners and other highway safety stakeholders combat this persistent but preventable problem.
General Motors is supporting the publication of an action-oriented, recommendation-rich report that takes a new look at distracted driving. The report will include a summary of the current distracted driving challenges; what the latest research tells us about risks, prevalence, public opinion and policy; the efficacy of distracted driving countermeasures; and what states and other highway safety entities are doing to address this problem.
After the report is released, seven SHSOs will be eligible to apply for grants of up to $30,000 per state to implement recommendations detailed in the report.
