April kicks off a nationwide effort to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving, and to eliminate preventable deaths and injuries on our roadways.

 

Studies show that while sending a four second text, traveling at 55 mph, a person would travel the length of a football field, all the while having your eyes off the road and on your phone.  

 

To prevent distracted driving, motorists are urged to:

  -Turn off electronic devices and put them out of reach before starting to drive.

  -Parents, talk to your teens about responsible driving and be the driver you want your teen to be.

  -As a passenger, speak up if your driver uses an electronic device.  Offer to make the call for the               driver, so his or her attention stays on the task of driving.

 

In an effort to combat distracted driving, the Department of Transportation will be running it's first ever advertising campaign, "U Drive. U Text. U Pay".  Meanwhile, law enforcement nationwide will be joining in on the effort to remind the public of the deadly consequences, as well as the the penalties for getting caught violating the state distracted driving laws. 

 

Secretary Foxx of the DOT reminds drivers:  "If you're caught texting while driving, the message you receive won't be from your cell phone, but from law enforcement - U Drive. U Text. U Pay."
