Distracted driving is rampant on our roadways, killing hundreds each year. Unfortunately, it is easier than ever to drive distracted. The technology in our vehicles allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while we are behind the wheel - all actions proven to increase crash risk. April is observed as Distracted Driving Awareness Month to draw attention to this epidemic. We want to encourage and empower everyone to put safety first.
