April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month
Every year, the National Safety Council holds Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April. The program’s goal is to educate drivers on the dangers of driving without complete focus on the road, whether that lack of focus comes from a quick phone call, a loud radio, or eating a burger from the drive-through window.
This year’s theme is multitasking—or rather, the myth of multitasking.
Contrary to popular belief, it’s impossible to focus on driving when you’re performing another task at the same time. Driving requires your absolute attention, and so many tragic crashes could have been prevented if the drivers involved had simply focused on the road.
“It was just a quick call. It was just a short trip. It was just one drink.”
These are common regrets shared by distracted drivers every day, regrets that could have been avoided had these drivers paid attention to the road.
Help us prevent unnecessary accidents. Stay focused, put the phone away, keep your eyes on the road, and let’s stay safe out there.
And if you’ve been the victim of a distracted driver, don’t hesitate to give our team a call.
