April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

  • Take Back Your Drive

    Distracted driving is rampant on our roadways, killing hundreds each year. Unfortunately, it is easier than ever to drive distracted. Auto makers are putting technology into our vehicles that allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while we are behind the wheel – 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.

    Materials will be available in February. In the meantime, check out some of our infographics, videos and other resources to prepare for April.

    You also can take the Focused Driver Challenge and pledge to drive cell free.
