Distracted Driver

April is:
Distracted Driver Awareness Month 

In the United States, every day, at least nine people die and 100 are injured in distracted driver crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 9% of fatal crashes in 2016 were reported as distraction-affected crashes and 3,450 people killed in motor vehicle accidents involved distracted drivers, including those who were texting and driving.
To prevent tragedies due to distracted driving, motorists are urged to:

  • Turn off electronic devices and put them out of reach before starting to drive.
  • Be good role models for young drivers and set a good example. Talk with teens about responsible driving.
  • Speak up when you are a passenger and your diver uses an electronic device while driving. Offer to make the call for them, so their full attention stays on the driving task.
  • Always wear your seatbelt. Seat belts are the best defense against unsafe drivers.
