ALPHARETTA, GA - LeasePlan USA's Vice President, Government Fleet Services, Matthew Betz, gave a presentation on distracted driving at the Michigan NAFA Chapter's Education Seminar on Oct. 21, 2010.

During the session, Betz presented the National Safety Council's (NSC) "Growing Epidemic of Cell Phone Use While Driving" training. The training was delivered to the group as if they were a class of drivers in order to show how easy it can be to train their own drivers on the dangers of distracted driving. The NSC training kit includes a participant guide, an instructor guide and a presentation.

"The NSC has prepared this tool kit in a way that includes everything a fleet manager needs to know to train their drivers, including steps to prepare for the course, materials needed for the meeting, a detailed agenda and more. And, the materials can be downloaded for free on the NSC website.

It's a great resource for anyone looking to curb distracted driving in their fleet," said Betz.

The NAFA Michigan Chapter sponsored the annual educational session in conjunction with the Tri-State Chapter and Western Reserve Subchapter.
