The Phones Down, Eyes Up campaign was initiated in honor of Brandon Walli. Sadly, Brandon lost his life at the age of 23 while crossing the road in 2016. It was thought that he had been texting and walking at the time. Brandon’s father, Tom Walli, and Geotab are hosting this free concert and informational event to shed light on managing device distraction in everyday life.
Brandon and Tom Walli shared a passion for music, so in honor of Brandon Walli, this year Geotab is offering a scholarship as part of Phones Down Eyes Up for those pursuing post-secondary education in music and the arts.
Donations collected at the Phones Down Eyes Up benefit concert will go towards the scholarship and Geotab will match the amount raised. This scholarship is open to students graduating in 2021.

The dangers of texting while walking or driving
Distracted walking injuries are on the rise and are a significant safety threat. Whether we are in the car or on foot, we need to be aware of our surroundings and to keep our Phones Down and our Eyes Up!
It is just as important to walk cell-free as it is to drive cell-free. Pedestrians and drivers using cell phones are both impaired and too mentally distracted to fully focus on their surroundings. Just remember, no call, text, or update is worth putting your life or someone else’s in danger.
