In this landmark study of distracted driving, the AAA Foundation challenges the notion that drivers are safe and attentive as long as their eyes are on the road and their hands are on the wheel. Using cutting-edge methods for measuring brain activity and assessing indicators of driving performance, this research examines the mind of the driver, and highlights the mental distractions caused by a variety of tasks that may be performed behind the wheel.

As in previous years, the Index highlights aspects of the current traffic safety culture that might be characterized as a culture of indifference, where drivers effectively say "do as I say, not as I do."
