Stay alert, stay safe

Did you know that in the U.S. alone, distracted driving results in more than 3,000 deaths annually? Distracted walking injuries are also 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 have 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. In fact, 47% of Canadians admit that they have typed out or used the voice-memo feature to send a message while driving. Just remember, no call, text or update is worth putting your life, or someone else’s, in danger.

In a highly connected world, it’s important that we disconnect both on and off the roads. Everyone has the responsibility to create safer roads for drivers and pedestrians.
Make these small changes to make a big difference:
• Avoid touching or looking at your phone while you drive.
• Put your phone on do not disturb mode so you aren’t tempted to check it.
• Be aware of your surroundings while crossing the street by staying off your phone.

Brandon's story

Brandon's story

The Phones Down, Eyes Up benefit concert is held annually in honor and memory of Brandon Walli.

Sadly, Brandon lost his life at the age of 23 while crossing the road in 2016. Brandon’s father, Tom Walli, and Geotab have teamed up each year to host this free and informational concert event to shed light on managing device distraction in everyday life.

Scholarship

Brandon and Tom Walli shared a passion for music. 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 from a secondary school in 2022.
