3 Seconds; A CPTV Documentary

Repeats Tuesday, Jul 17 at 10:00 pm and Saturday, Sept 15 at 7:00 pm

 

Watch this documentary if you are concerned about yours and others’ highway

safety.

 

We all know that if you fall asleep while driving, you will crash shortly

after.  Yet drivers are more routinely engaged in distracted behaviors than

ever, when conscious attention is diverted from this potentially hazardous

task, the results can be catastrophic, individually and on a national level,

37,000 U.S. fatalities yearly, lately getting worse.  We keep meticulous

track of the wrecks with no effective deterrent.  Other countries around the

world are experiencing improvements, not the U.S!

 

You don’t know when you’ve fallen asleep; likewise, when your mind wanders.

At Survive the Drive, we call it ‘Driving While Oblivious’! That is, unless

you engage yourself in the importance of the job.

 

There have always been distracted drivers. Without concentration, the mind

wanders with acclimated routine, no apparent need for attention. At

interstate speeds inside the car may be motionless, not even spilling the

coffee, but would hit at the speed of falling off an eight story building!

Add to that electronic gadgetry, communications and entertainment, and other

car features for comfort and convenience. Electronic connectivity satisfies

our need for stimulation, taking consciousness from the complexities of

vehicle guidance and (worse) recognizing kinetic hazards. Some electronics

are designed to supplant the driver to be a more unconnected passenger than

pilot.

 

Driving is not that simple.  The morbid statistics prove it.

 

We at Survive the Drive have been making the case for engaged, conscious and

attentive driving since 1996 and continue to do so with our community

service presentations and driver improvement training programs.

 

We endorse Jennifer Boyd’s efforts and those of her sponsors to bring this

more to the public attention. From the documentary, drivers may improve

their own errant behaviors and recognize that others share the road or are

driving at them with little regard for safety.
