NTSB Hosts Attentive Driving Forum Tomorrow

Announced last month, NTSB’s Attentive Driving: Countermeasures for Distraction forum will take place tomorrow. The complete agenda for the event is available on the agency’s website, along with a list of speakers. The forum will examine distractions that compete for drivers’ attention, and discuss the various laws and the differences in how states have adopted restrictions. Panelists include representatives from safety advocacy groups, vehicle manufacturers, law enforcement, government and the research community. The event will be streamed live via webcast.
