At Work At Home On the Road

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

  • Technology allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while driving – 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 Just Drive.

    Resources to Share

    Create awareness in your workplace, your home or community by sharing the distracted driving message. NSC offers infographics, a poster, fact sheet and a number of social media-friendly graphics.

    Webinar: Driving Distraction-free – and Defensively

    Eliminating distractions in your own car is important, but what about everyone around you? Watch this webinar to learn how to handle family, friends and employers who distract you while driving, and how to stay alert and avoid other distracted drivers on the road.
