    discuss the science of driver distraction, how mobile device use while
    driving degrades driver performance, common misconceptions about
    cell phones and driving, and public opinions on cell phone bans.
    David’s inspiring story and the information he presents about distracted driving, will forever change
    how you drive. It might even change how you view your fleet, how you approach your company’s cell
    phone policy and the driving rules you set for your family.

    Many of us start our careers with the best of intentions. Over time, the demand of producing
    superior results under challenging conditions can take its toll. Even those with a superior,
                                                                                                                Fred Schafer,

    with what inspired them to enter their profession in the first place. The fact is that success in
    any endeavor always requires a combination of our heart, mind and spirit. One of the best
    ways to do this is to “dream” a little. Unfortunately, most people don’t know or understand the benefit of “Dreaming for
    Results.” Instead, we spend our time and effort learning the latest regulations, guidelines and technical expertise to improve
    our performance. While those are necessary to succeed, they’re not enough. The answer is to get your heart, mind and
    spirit plugged in to what makes you tick. Fasten your seat belt and prepare to be inspired, challenged and equipped by Fred
    Schafer to think clearer, dream bigger and do better!
