How often do you take your eyes off the road? by Doug Patterson

December 18, 2015

Drivers today are overwhelmed by potential distractions. Whether you're eating a banana with one hand on the wheel, changing the radio station, or glancing over at the text message that just popped up, every moment you're not mindful of what's happening on the road is a potential danger. Getting from Point A to B requires your full attention--and driving with your brain on autopilot just isn't an option. Check out this video to find out why. (Just don't watch it while you're driving.)

Throughout 2015, we're partnering with Progressive to harness the power of information. Each week, we'll put data under the microscope, asking how statistics and research can empower us to challenge our understanding of ourselves and the ways we navigate our world. Knowledge is the first step on the way to progress: Let's take this information and drive change in the world together. This is Data for GOOD.
