Distracted Driving is Never Okay

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving claimed 3,166 lives in 2017.

Talking or texting on the phone, eating, drinking, or simply chatting with passengers can all contribute to distracted driving. Anything that diverts the attention of the driver from the road ahead could be the cause of a fatal accident.

In an effort to encourage safe driving practices and habits, several organizations have set out to campaign for and invite all drivers to pledge against distracted driving.

Take the pledge for Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
