Mark your calendar for Distracted Driving Awareness Month
Distracted Driving Awareness Month is right around the corner
Eighty percent of Americans mistakenly believe hands-free devices are safer than using handheld phones while driving. But that is just not the case. More than 30 studies show hands-free devices don’t make drivers any safer because the brain remains distracted by the phone conversation.
Join the National Safety Council this April in observing Distracted Driving Awareness Month. It is the perfect time to break the habit and put away your phone while behind the wheel.
