What is Distracted Driving ??

Distracted Driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. These actions take the driver’s attention away from the road and traffic.

Driving becomes secondary in importance to another activity that is happening inside the car, truck or cycle while the vehicle is in motion.

These types of distractions include:


•Using a cell phone or smartphone

•Eating and drinking

•Talking to passengers


•Reading, including maps

•Using a navigation system

•Watching a video

•Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player


All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety.

Distracted driving kills and injures thousands of people each year.

What can you do:

•Protect lives by never texting or talking on the phone while driving.

•Be a good passenger and speak out if the driver in my car is distracted.

•Encourage my friends and family to drive phone-free.
