April is Distracted Driver’s Awareness Month. Everyday, more than 700 people are injured in distracted driving crashes. Distracted driving consists of actions such as talking on cellphones, texting, eating, or anything that takes away your attention from the road. Use #justdrive this month to keep yourself and others safe.
The National Safety Council recognizes Distracted Driving Awareness Month in order to help make roadways and people safer. It is important to always be attentive on the road no matter the circumstances. Address family members, co workers, friends, and others with resources and communications of distracted driving.
