Distracted Driving Awareness Month (posted 4/14/17)
traffic safety






One text or call could wreck it all.

National Distracted Driving Awareness Month continues to challenge drivers to avoid driving distractions. While a distraction is anything that takes your vision, hearing, hands or mind away from the task of driving, cell phones are commonly recognized as the signal most significant cause of distraction not only to drivers, but also to pedestrians. Texting takes the hands, eyes and mind off the task of driving, a triple threat.

According to a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI), sending or receiving a text takes a driver's eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds, the equivalent of driving blind at 55-mph for the length of an entire football field. A lot can happen in that time.

Take the pledge.

The fight to end distracted driving starts here. Make a commitment to drive phone-free today.

Distracted driving kills and injures thousands of people each year. I pledge to:

  • Protect lives by never texting or talking on the phone while driving
  • Be a good passenger and speak out if the driver in my car is distracted.
  • Encourage my friends and family to drive phone-free.
