Becoming UNDISTRACTED Drivers!

Posted: Updated:

Up to 6000 people are killed each year across the country in wrecks involving drivers who took their eyes off the road. Up to 500,000 are injured.

The idea behind Distracted Driver Awareness Month is to focus a national spotlight on getting all of us to be UNDISTRACTED drivers. That means not texting, talking on a handheld phone or doing your makeup. Driving UNDISTRACTED.

CHP officers say they are watching and ticketing drivers on a daily basis. But, as they put it, every car has a cellphone. That's how they see it. That means every driver could be distracted by it. But, whether it is that, or a hamburger, a document or something else you might look at, distractions kill.

The California Department of Traffic Safety reports 80% of the accidents in our state are related to driver distraction. That's why, during this month, authorities remind all of us to be UNDISTRACTED DRIVERS!

How do we do that? Keep our eyes on the road!
