April Is "Distracted Driver Awareness" Month

Tuesday, April 23rd

As part of April’s “Distracted Driver Awareness Month,” DriversEd.com released new survey data in its 2019 Distracted Driving and Social Media Report.

The most alarming findings is that 55% of surveyed participants admit to checking social media while behind the wheel and 25% said they’ve even recorded a video while behind the wheel.

Laura Adams is a safety and education analyst at DriversEd.com. She offered some tips from the National Safety Council (NSC) on how to avoid distracted driving.

#Phonedown is the social media campaign associated with this campaign.
