There’s more to distracted driving than annoying people staring at their phones instead of hitting the gas pedal when the traffic light turns green. Although cell phones are the biggest culprit for driver distractions, there are many others. In our safe driving videos, Aceable can give you more examples of distractions, explain what’s at risk, and prepare you with tips for reducing distractions.

If you’re under 21 years old, it’s particularly important for you to understand Zero Tolerance and how to navigate social situations involving alcohol without messing up your life. You’ll even find resources about alcohol-related rules like the Open Container Law from watching out videos and using our resources. We're here to help!

Find out how you can make it through long road trips and early morning commutes without putting yourself and others in danger.
