Stop Distracted Driving


Getting behind the wheel of your car may seem like a commonplace event, but it could be the most dangerous thing you will do today. Every day in the U.S., more than nine people are killed and 1,000 injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. 

Although you can't control the actions of other motorists, you CAN control how you operate your vehicle. Increase your chances for a safe trip by following a few simple precautions. Avoid distractions while driving like texting, eating and changing the radio or navigation system.  

Remember, you can’t drive safely unless the task of driving has your full attention. Any non-driving activity you engage in is a potential distraction and increases your risk of crashing.
