Distracted Driving Month

April 1st, 2013 - By Steve James

 

This month is “Distracted Driving” Month in Tennessee and across the nation.

The goal is to help prevent the approximately three thousand nationwide distracted driving deaths per year.

According to National Safety Council figures, at any given time you’re on the roadway, eleven percent of motorists around you are using their cell phones, but distracted driving isn’t just about cell phone use.

Statistics reveal that three quarters of the 400,000 distracted driving accidents across the United States are caused by something besides cell phones, such as checking a GPS, reaching into the glove compartment, or eating while driving.
