Take the Pledge with Acadia Insurance

Distracted driving is an issue across the U.S. causing accidents, property damage, injuries, and even death. In 2015, 31.5% of drivers admitted to typing a message while driving compared to 26.6% in 2012. In 2016, 3,450 people were killed, in crashes involving distracted drivers. There was an increase in distracted driving fatalities from 2014-2015 of 8% and 9% of fatal crashes in 2016 were distraction-related.* We all need to take the steps to make the road a safe place for everyone.
