I have about an hour commute to work and an hour commute home each day (4 days a week) and I can honestly say that I probably see at least a dozen driver talking on their cell phone while driving each way. It’s become a game to me to spot the drivers by the way they are driving and I’m rarely wrong.
In spite of the fact that it is now illegal to drive with a cell phone plastered to your ear, the police is apparently turning a bling eye because there are still hundreds of people out there doing it.
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and the National Safety Council (NSC) wants drivers all across American to “ditch the cell phone while driving”.
Find out more about what you can do or what your company can do to reduce distracted driving on the NSC website page dedicated to it.
You’ll find a pledge to sign, posters you can download, a video and opportunities to share the message with social media.
