Of all the factors contributing to unsafe driving, distraction is among the biggest. Whether people are focusing on finding a good radio station or even texting their friends, drivers are becoming more and more distracted and this poses a major threat to public health.
Each year, tens of thousands of people are killed on American roadways in car accidents and a large portion of these deaths is caused by distracted driving, which could all have been easily prevented. Even taking your eyes off the road for as little as one second is enough to be the difference between life and death.
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, but this issue is prevalent all year round. We would like to challenge all drivers to remain 100 percent focused on the road at all times. Keep your eyes on the road and not on your phone and join us in helping to save lives.
