Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects us all. The latest statistics show motor vehicle fatalities are up 6% from 2015.
More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation's roadways last year, and distracted driving is a major contributor.
Each death is 100% preventable. From cell phones to dashboard infotainment systems to evolving voice command features – all pose a threat to our safety. Just one second of your attention is all takes to change a life forever.
Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives.
