About National Distracted Driving Awareness Month:

State and local law police will be stepping up enforcement and education April 2nd through April 30th, 2019, for the national high-visibility enforcement effort U Drive. U Text. U Pay.

Over the past decade, distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of vehicle crashes on our nation’s roads. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), between 2012-2017, nearly 20,000 people died in crashes involving a distracted driver. In fact, there were 3,166 people killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2017.

In Connecticut, there have been just under 30,000 crashes involving distraction (motorist and non-motorists) since 2015 and this includes 41 fatal crashes. 

Sending or receiving a text message takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds. Driving at 55 mph, this is the equivalent of traveling the length of an entire football field, BLIND. That sure sounds scary. 

If you are expecting a text message or need to send one, pull over and park your car in a safe location. Once you are safely off the road and parked, it is safe to text.

If you see something, say something. If your friends text while driving, tell them to stop. Listen to your passengers: If they catch you texting while driving and tell you to put your phone away, put it down. 

Even though we all think we are the best driver, and it’s only a few seconds that you divert your attention from driving.  Whether it’s eating, texting or talking, these actions can have deadly or have life changing consequences. 

Remember, when you get behind the wheel, put your phone away. U Drive. U Text. U Pay.
