The Louisiana Property and Casualty Insurance Commission met on December 4th for a presentation on distracted driving. Nationally recognized speaker and founder of End Distracted Driving, Joel Feldman, provided a broad and thought-provoking spectrum of information on the topic. Mr. Feldman offered compelling statistics and recounted his own and others’ personal loss, but focused his message on raising awareness, inducing self-examination, educating, and ultimately modifying distracted driving behavior through a series of varied questions, videos and approaches. Mr. Feldman promoted banning hand-held cell phone use by all drivers as a worthy legislative goal.
