The Alabama Distracted Driving Summit
The UAB University Transportation Center and the University Transportation Center for Alabama sponsored the Alabama Distracted Driving Summit on December 3, 2009, at the Doubletree Hotel in Birmingham, AL.
The purpose of this one day event was to bring together researchers, educators, public policy and decision makers, and private citizens from across our state to describe the scope and nature of the distracted driving problem, to identify meaningful ways to increase public awareness of the safety issues associated with distracted driving, and to identify and review legislative and regulatory approaches for addressing distracted driving in Alabama.
Due to the overwhelming number of registrants for the 2009 Alabama Distracted Driving Summit online registration is now closed. Thank you all for your interest and support.

Driven with Distraction- by Sec. Ray LaHood
By all accounts, Joe Teater was a youngster with tremendous promise: smart, popular, interested in making movies and videos. But the 12-year-old Michigan boy was killed in 2004 when a driver ran a red light and smashed into the car in which Joe and his mother were riding. The driver who hit Joe's car didn't see the red light because she was talking on her cellphone.
