The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers last year.
During daylight hours, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving. Teen drivers, ages 15-19, were the largest group reported as distracted at the time of fatal crashes.
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Remind the ones you love to put down the phone and put both hands on the wheel.
