Zatkoff Seals & Packings is participating in a national initiative to reduce distracted driving. Distracted driving due to cell phones is responsible for more than one million car crashes each year, and we are taking on the challenge to completely eliminate cell phone use in cars. Wellness and safety is one of our top priorities at Zatkoff, and we want to invite all of our families, friends, customers, and suppliers to participate in the challenge!
Drivers who use cell phones experience cognitive distractions, driving performance problems, and of course incur an increased crash risk. To help spread awareness, we invite you to consider changing your outgoing mobile voicemail message to include the words, “I am either away from my phone or driving, and for safety reasons, I don’t use my phone while driving.” We also encourage you to add an auto response to your text messages that states the same.
At Zatkoff we believe in being a part of the global community, and as such, the safety of all people is of our utmost concern. Join us in our initiative to reduce distracted driving by promoting the habit of safe, cell phone free driving.
