Your Brain Can’t Multitask: Learn Why You Shouldn’t Test This While Driving

Cell phones are an addiction and are used in nearly every car and truck on the road. This is the last place they should be used as they draw the driver's attention away from driving  and to the text or call. The National Safety Council recently released new crash information which finds that distracted driving due to cell phone use has taken the number one spot causing more crashes and deaths than a drunk driver. Secondly, they shared that the crash data for distracted driving has had the biggest increase in over 50 years of data collection.

Join this session with expert speaker Shelley Forney where you will learn how a single text or phone conversation could impact the rest of your life in a potentially deadly way if your driver habits do not change. Shelley is a nationally-recognized safety speaker and will share how "one phone conversation" forever impacted her family of five. She will share her knowledge on the epidemic of cell phone and texting distracted driving. She will discuss how cell phones and driving is a deadly combination due to the cognitive distraction they present. She will discuss the complexities of the multi-tasking-while-driving myth, inattention blindness, cognitive distraction, CDL and driver cell phone laws, National Safety Council crash data, NHTSA and AAA foundation statistics, and personal accounts of loss due to a single phone call or a texting driver that took her child's life at the young age of nine.

During the session, you will learn how your brain cannot perform two tasks at the same time, such as driving and the task of the phone conversation or text messaging. You will also learn how technology-enhanced vehicles draw the driver’s attention away from the road. Over 50% of the driver’s visibility is lost due to inattention blindness and multi-tasking. Shelley will discuss common misperceptions about cell phones and driving, the multi-tasking myth, how hands free is not risk free and the scientific side of how our brains process driving and a blue-tooth conversation. She will share NHTSA statistics, distracted driving data from the NSC and AAA foundation, David Strayer’s (a cognitive neuroscientist) findings regarding distracted driving, and national driving and truck driver laws surrounding cell phone calls and texting.
