Ten years ago, we posted a blog article entitled Driving Distracted Should be a Safety Rule Violation.  Since that time, this deadly roadway epidemic has only gotten worse.  In 2019, distracted driverskilled 3,142 people.  This represented a 10% increase from 2018.  Although teenagers represent the largest percentage of offenders, it is done by all types and ages.  The main offendersconsider themselves good drivers and rationalize that they are only looking away for a few seconds

April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month.  Think about that when you are on the road.  No text message is worth an accident resulting in injury or death.  Even if you are not distracted, it is important to constantly be aware of all the drivers around you that are.    

Be safe out there!
