Distracted Driving

J.E.B. Insurance Services, LLC has established a partnership with the University Of Central Florida Department Of Research in Advanced Performance Technology and Educational Readiness in an effort to bring more awareness to distracted driving. Distracted driving has long been the cause of numerous accidents that kill innocent lives every year and the Department of Transportation is finally taking action.  

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced a final rule specifically prohibiting interstate truck and bus drivers from using hand-held cell phones while operating their commercial vehicles. This new rule will affect approximately four million commercial truck drivers. Please take the time to review the new ruling and penalties at
