Distracted Driving Awareness Month 2014

Phillip #DDAM

 

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. According to the National Safety Council, up to 90% of all car crashes are caused by driver error and about 26% of all car crashes involve cell phone use – including hands free! Hands-free doesn’t necessarily mean risk free; any cell phone usage while driving is dangerous.

So for the month of April and every month after, make a commitment to drive cell phone free. It’s not too late; you can sign the pledge here. Pledging to drive cell free can make a difference in your life and others’.

For more information, graphics, or campaign materials, visit the National Safety Council’s “Safety on the Road” site.
