The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determined that over 3300 people were killed and an estimated 421,000 injured in distraction-affected crashes in 2012. This module covers the many issues surrounding this topic. In particular, how drivers have underestimated this problem for years and the myths surrounding multi-tasking.

Many experienced drivers still do not know how to use ABS and ESC for optimum safety and performance.
