MORE WORKERS ARE KILLED EVERY YEAR IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES THAN ANY OTHER CAUSE.
Distracted driving is an epidemic on America’s roadways. In 2013, 3,154 people were killed and an estimated 424,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver. These statistics are increasing with every year that passes.
Texting and cell phone use behind the wheel takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, and your focus off driving – putting yourself and others in danger. The National Safety Council observes April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month to draw attention to this epidemic.
