Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Message from National Safety Council

Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects us all. The latest statistics show motor vehicle fatalities are up 6% from 2015. More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation’s roadways last year, and distracted driving is a major contributor.

Each death is 100% preventable. From cell phones to dashboard infotainment systems to evolving voice command features – all pose a threat to our safety. Just one second of your attention is all takes to change a life forever.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives.

Resources to Share

 

Create awareness in your workplace, your home or community bysharing the distracted driving message. NSC offers infographics, posters, fact sheets and a number of social media-friendly graphics.
