April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

From the National Safety Council website…

“Thousands have died in car crashes involving cell phone use. New technology allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while driving – all actions that are proven to increase crash risk. The National Safety Council observes April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month to draw attention to this epidemic. NSC wants empower you to put safety first and Take Back Your Drive.

NSC makes it easy to spread the message about the dangers of cell phone use while driving. Share these free posters, tip sheets, infographics and webinars on social media, your web page or via email. Please help us get the word out.”

Take the Focused Driver Challenge and pledge to drive cell free. You can pledge to your children or other loved ones that you will be an attentive driver. Share your pledge on social media if you’d like.
