To kickoff Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Star Tribune recently ran a story about the NorthstarMLS Drive Focused campaign and website we launched to raise awareness on distracted driving in honor of our Rules & Regulations Administrator, Hubert “Hugh” Skanes-Cady (Trimble), who tragically lost his life in July of 2016 as the result of a motor vehicle crash when he was rear ended while riding his motorcycle.

It was the top-read story of the day on StarTribune.com on Sunday (4/2) after it was posted. Click here to read the article. Share it on social media and help spread the word to #DriveFocused this month!
