Distracted Driving – placing people in peril

On Behalf of | Feb 15, 2017 | Car Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 10% of drivers are talking on a cellphone during any given daylight moment. These drivers are distracted both visually and cognitively. Being distracted, these drivers are impaired in their ability to drive safely. These drivers’ attention to road safety can be even worse than that of a drunk driver. The call, text or email can wait. We encourage people to be watchful for vehicles with distracted drivers and keep a safe distance from any vehicle where the driver is distracted. We also encourage everyone to volunteer to help end distracted driving. There is a campaign to end distracted driving called EndDD. Anyone can volunteer to help by going to www.EndDD.org
