–April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month–
Distracted driving is a public health issue that affects us all. The latest statistics show motor vehicle fatalities are up 6% from 2015. More than 40,000 people were killed on our nation’s roadways last year, and distracted driving is a major contributor.
Many are pledging to their Children or Loved Ones to be an Attentive Driver either personally and also online:
I pledge to Just Drive for my own safety and for others with whom I share the roads. I choose to not drive distracted in any way – I will not:
•Have a phone conversation – handheld, hands-free, or via Bluetooth
•Text or send Snapchats
•Use voice-to-text features in my vehicle’s dashboard system
•Update Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Video or other social media
•Check or send emails
•Take selfies or film videos
•Input destinations into GPS (while the vehicle is in motion)
•Call or message someone else when I know they are driving
Have a Great week from Moynihan Insurance Agency, Inc.
