April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Distracted Driver

Most Americans drivers believe that hands-free devices are safer than using your cell phone. Over 30 studies show that hands-free devices are no safer because your brain is still distracted by the conversation you are having. Driver’s can miss up to half of what is going on around them including traffic lights, stop signs, pedestrians and more. This month, take a moment to look at your driving habits and make sure you are staying safe by staying focused on driving while behind the wheel. Check out this infographic below and share it with family, friends and colleagues to promote distracted free driving, this month and beyond.
