Cox Automotive Canada Launches Anti-Impaired and Distracted Driving Campaign

Cox Automotive Canada's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Cornerstone 'Cox Cares', releases a series of videos to raise awareness

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 5, 2017 /CNW/ - Today, Cox Automotive Canada launched an impactful campaign as a reminder of the perils of driving impaired or distracted. 

Approximately four Canadians every day are killed due to impaired driving crashes1. Distracted driving has grown to the number one risk on our roads and is a contributing factor in 80% of collisions2.

"As an automotive company, it is important to continue to remind Canadians of the risks of impaired and distracted driving," said Maria Soklis, President of Cox Automotive Canada. "If this campaign saves even one life, it will have been worthwhile." 

The campaign will feature three videos created in both French and English and feature several Cox Automotive Canada executives from our Dealertrack and NextGear Capital businesses.

It will target the automotive community and Canadians over the holiday season through Cox Automotive Canada's media channels.
