In light of April being Distracted Driving Awareness Month, Selective Insurance Company of America announced new safe driving initiatives, partnering with EndDD (End Distracted Driving) and the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation. One action includes a Distracted Driving Pledge that encourages customers, insurance agents and employees to spread the word about safe driving behaviors, and donations to support the work of EndDD on behalf of every customer who signs up for Selective Drive, a safe driving sensor, through their independent insurance agent in the month of April.
