Tokio Marine America's mission as a Good Company is to provide Anshin (safety, security, and peace of mind) to all of our clients and to the general public.

Even with fewer vehicles on the road throughout the pandemic, the number of traffic casualties remained steady. As traffic made its return to pre-pandemic levels, the National Safety Council (NSC) reported a 9% increase in traffic deaths from 2020 to 2021.

The roads are once again filled with a high concentration of drivers, and unfortunately, many of them continue to make the dangerous decision to drive distracted. Distracted driving comes in many forms, whether it be manual or visual distractions (tasks that require removing hands from the wheel or eyes from the road), cognitive distractions (tasks that take the driver’s attention away from the road), or a combination of all of them.

The most prominent cause of distracted driving is cell phone use, as the constant desire to text, consume media, or interact on social media takes drivers’ attention off the road in a multitude of ways. However, new technology and infotainment systems in vehicles are also adding to our driving distractions.

There is a misnomer among drivers that infotainment dashboards and hands free technology systems must be safe if car manufacturers are adding them, but in fact, they are designed more for convenience than driver safety. Drivers also believe by using a hands free device they are making the safe choice. This is not the case, as these technologies cause both cognitive and visual distractions.

It is up to us to help enact change and play a part in saving lives by ending distracted driving. Tokio Marine America proudly supports EndDD.org to bring awareness and end distracted driving.
