The Impact of Policies on the Delivery of Healthcare
How would these impact Healthcare
2012 there were
people killed in distracted related accidents
KNOW THE FACTS
10% of all drivers under the age of 20 involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the crash
A quarter of teens respond to a text message once or more every time they drive
20% of teens and 10% of parents admit that they have extended, multi-message text conversations while driving
Adults do it too!
77% of young drivers are very or somewhat confident that they can safely text and drive
55% of young adult drivers claim it's easy to text while they drive
48% of young drivers have reported seeing their parents talk on a cell phone while driving
15% reported seeing their parents text while driving
Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety.
Perspectives on the Problem and its Solutions from Key People in the Community
RI Department of Transportation
Young Drivers overrepresented in serious injury and fatal crashes
Peter Kilmartin & Susan Sosnowski
Pioneers of RI existing and pending legislation regarding texting and driving
RI State Police
AT&T It can Wait
Stop the Texts Stop the Wrecks
RI DOH &
State of Rhode Island Highway Safety Plan
Lives are being lost each day
Each day more than 15 people are killed & more than 1200 people are injured in crashes that were reported to involve a distracted driver
People are becoming injured
Drivers who use hand held devices are 4 times more likely to get into crashes serious enough to cause injury
Distracted Driving puts young drivers at risk
New groups of young people are getting their licenses each year
Sending the Wrong Message to Future Drivers
Automobiles are now WiFi Hot Spots
NEVER MISS A MOMENT!!!
The Consequences of the Health Problem for Society
Increased risk of death by unintentional injury related to distracted driving as demonstrated in an increased rate of traffic fatalities among youth aged 15-21 secondary to distracted driving
US Laws on Distracted Driving
Rhode Island Laws
Programs & Resources that Address the Problem
Gaps in Policies and Programs
Lack of reliable data
RI Senate bill 2092
– Bans the use of handheld devices
Winners and Losers of Proposed Legislation
Focus is on one aspect of distracted driving
RI still allows the use of mobile phones while driving
Enforcement is difficult
Hands free technology potentially just as dangerous
NTSB calls for states to adopt a complete ban
Hands Free Technology Companies and Retailers
People that utilize roadways
Rhode Island College School of Nursing
HAND-HELD cell phones
Animals must be contained or restrained
while operating a motor vehicle
* However, there is evidence that all-driver bans on hand-held phone conversations can have large and lasting effects on driver’s behaviors.
Impact of Current Laws
Impact of Programs
of viewers say they’ve changed their driving habits
Evidence Based Interventions
Improve enforcement of distracted driving laws
Distracted Driving not specifically addressed
Emphasis Area: YOUNG DRIVERS
Strategies and Action Plan
Governors Highway Safety Association
OF DRIVERS WHO ARE
AT THE TIME OF A FATAL CRASH
1st offense = $100
2nd offense = $150
3 or more

ALL cell phone use
school bus drivers

school bus drivers
from using a cell phone while transporting children
from using hand-held mobile device
RIDOH Violence & Injury Prevention Program
Highway Safety Grant Program
= PSA’s, pledges, websites, social media profiles
High Visibility Enforcement
* Hard to measure due to inconsistent crash data
and inconsistent enforcement.
2013 = ~
granted to RI
- Effective strategy against similar behaviors
- Proven decrease in people talking & texting on cell phones
* Drive mode app =
AT&T’s It Can Wait
RI high school students
* "From One Second to the Next" =
Improve access to and credibility of distracted driving data
Increase public awareness of the dangers of distracted driving
Strengthen laws on distracted driving
Overcrowding of emergency departments, and trauma centers
Giving testimony to proposed legislature
and participating in research/studies
Current Policies...Are they effective?
Proposed legislation...will it improve current policies?
Identify, define, and describe distracted driving.
Define populations affected by distracted driving.
Identify key legislators/government officials that are addressing the problem of distracted driving.
Describe the impact of existing programs, resources, policies, and laws that are currently impacting distracted driving.
Identify the gaps in current policies and programs affecting distracted driving.
Define the RNs role and responsibilities considering distracted driving
Identify upstream interventions to prevent distracted driving.
