– “Allstate’s Ronelle Funk is Sounding the Call on Distracted Driving”
“Funk’s passion for the issue is both personal and professional. As an agent, she wants to help her clients stay safe, as a mother of 19- and 23-year-old boys, she wants to change a culture that puts them at risk. “I’m very concerned about them and their friends,” she says. “I had a friend who was killed in a traffic accident my senior year in high school, so I already had some connection to this as a young person.”
“Funk believes that while technology can be an effective tool, knowledge is power, and she plans to continue spreading the message about the risks posed by phones and driving. “I see firsthand the results of accidents, the damage to vehicles and the injuries,” she says. “It’s important to raise awareness so we can reduce the harm that distracted driving causes.”
