It is illegal to use hand-held devices while driving.

When driving, do you do things that distract you from the road – even for a second? Distracted driving is dangerous and unacceptable.  

It only takes a second to send a text, to dial a number, to input information into a GPS. It only takes a second to become distracted, to have an accident, to take a life. Why take the risk?

Driving requires your full attention. Distractions cause us to react more slowly, and they can cause accidents. Studies show that a significant percentage of collisions are the result of distracted driving: “driver distraction is a factor in 8 out of 10 – about 4 million – car crashes in each year.”

Start changing your habits now by keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel. Help create a culture where distracted driving is socially unacceptable.
