Ten years ago, we posted a blog article entitled Driving Distracted Should be a Safety Rule Violation.
Since that time, this deadly roadway epidemic has only gotten worse. In 2019, distracted drivers killed 3,142 people.
This represented a 10% increase from 2018. Although
teenagers represent the largest percentage of offenders, it is done by all types and ages. The main offenders consider themselves good drivers and rationalize that they are only looking away for a few seconds.
April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month. Think about that when you are on the road. No text message is worth an accident resulting in injury
or death. Even if you are not distracted, it is important to constantly be aware of all the drivers around you that are.
Be safe out there!
