Arbella Puts the Brakes on Distracted Driving

ARBELLA PUTS THE BRAKES ON DISTRACTED DRIVING Five years ago, Arbella Insurance noticed an alarming trend: accidents caused by distracted driving were on the rise. To counter this problem, the Arbella Insurance Foundation created Distractology 101. Distractology 101 crisscrosses Southern New England to educate new drivers about the dangers of distracted driving. The mobile classroom is outfitted with high-tech driving simulators that give new drivers a real-life look at the potentially disastrous effects of distracted driving.
