UPS has always viewed distracted driving as a serious issue. It’s a leading cause of vehicle accidents, especially among teens. Distractions come from a variety of sources: texting, eating, using phones, adjusting the radio or talking with passengers.
To help combat distracted driving, in 2009 UPS and The UPS Foundation developed UPS Road Code, a four-session safe-driving program for teens that teaches the consequences of hazardous and distracted driving. The program leverages UPS’s safety methods and strong safety record.
