Distracted Driving Awareness Month
April 2022

April 12, 2022

Every April, Distracted Driving Awareness Month helps bring attention to the dangers of distracted driving and the importance of eliminating driving distractions. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), our roads are the most dangerous that they have been in years. On a typical day, eight people are killed and hundreds more are injured in crashes that involve distractions.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) describes distracted driving as any activity that diverts attention from driving. Some of these distractions include:

  • Talking or texting on your phone
  • Eating and drinking while driving
  • Talking to other people in your vehicle
  • Tuning the stereo, entertainment, or navigation system

Simple actions taken before leaving the driveway can eliminate many distractions. Phone calls, text messages, and programming entertainment / navigation systems should be taken care of prior to driving. Help keep everyone safe on the roads and #JustDrive.
