The Fasten & Focus campaign aims to raise awareness of the dangers and serious consequences of distracted driving and is devoted to providing education and resources that will help every driver understand the importance of focusing on driving, and only driving, every time they get behind the wheel. We collaborate with local schools, law enforcement, and local partners to creatively engage drivers and promote distraction free driving. Below is a few examples of how we are active in your community.
