In 2015, distracted driving claimed 3,477 lives, and 391,000 more were injured. During daylight hours approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, which creates enormous potential for deaths and injuries on America's roadways. Teens were the largest age group reported as distracted at the time of fatal crashes. We'd like to encourage you to continually talk to teens, and everyone else, to spread the message that distracted driving is dangerous, in all forms, whether it be texting, eating, or even reading social media, and must be stopped. You might be asking yourself at this point, "What can we do to ensure drivers are safe on America's roadways?"
Well, that's exactly what we'd hope you would say... We're hosting a Tweet Up on April 28 to spread the message of the dangers of distracted driving and we'd like you to help by spreading it to your friends, family, and followers. By constantly reminding drivers to put down their phones and #JustDrive, we reduce the risks associated with distracted driving. Won't you join us in our fight for safer roadways?
