Don’t Let a Distraction Become a Fatal Decision

Distractions kill

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, there were 3,328 people killed and an estimated 421,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes involv­ing distracted drivers in 2012.

Distraction kills.

What exactly is a distraction? Anything that diverts a driver’s attention away from the primary task of driving is a distraction. This includes tasks such as:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone or smart phone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player, or iPod

Don’t let a distraction become a fatal decision. Never engage in any distraction that can take your attention from the road. Your life, and the lives of those around you, depend on it.
