At Republic Services, our first value is Safe, protecting the livelihoods of our coworkers and communities. One of the ways we can all live this value every day is by making a commitment to not drive distracted. July is Distracted Driving Awareness Month with the goal of encouraging employees to share in the responsibility of ending distracted driving. Take the Safe Driver Pledge, a promise to drive safe and distraction free – and ask your loved ones, especially teen drivers, to join you. Sign the pledge by July 31 for a chance to win Company Store merch!
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines distracted driving as “any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system — anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.”
