April is Distracted Driving                   Awareness Month

Each April, the National Safety Council creates a Distracted Driving Awareness Month campaign to educate on the dangers of both handheld and hands-free cell phone use while driving. Calls kill. We need your support to help get the word out on the risks.  Driving requires more than our eyes on the road and hands on the wheel – we need our minds to focus on the task of driving. Studies show that drivers talking on cell phones, handheld or hands-free, can miss seeing up to 50% of important information around them, including traffic signals, pedestrians and bicyclists.

Here are the facts:

• Drivers using cell phones are four times as likely to crash

• Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of work-related deaths

• More than 30 research studies show that hands-free offers drivers no safety benefit
