The video features two fictional drama short stories to show how an instant of distraction can cause a crash. Looking away for a second plus the time it takes to refocus and recognize what’s happening can take a car about 300 feet at highway speed or the length of an entire football field. Many drivers are overconfident about their ability to multi-task beyond the many tasks required for driving. The video discusses all the types of distractions. It also makes the point that multiple distracted drivers on the same roadway are a recipe for disaster. (DVD – 15 minutes)
