April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Thousands have died in car crashes involving cell phone use. New technology allows us to make phone calls, dictate texts or emails and update social media while driving - all actions that are proven to increase crash risk.

There is no safe way to use a cell phone while driving - even hands free. Distracted driving takes many forms, but cell phone use is at the top. Research shows the brain remains distracted for 27 seconds after dialing, changing music or sending a text using voice commands. Almost everyone has seen a driver distracted by a cell phone, but often you don't realize that distracted driver is you.

Safety Tips:

  1. Turn it off and stow it. Turn your phone off or switch it to silent mode before you get in the car. Then stow it away so that it's out of reach.

  2. Spread the word. Record a message on your phone that tells callers you're driving and will get back to them when you're off the road, or sign up for a service that offers this feature.

  3. Pull Over.If you need to make a call, pull over to a safe area first.

  4. Use your passengers.Ask a passenger to make the call or respond to a text for you.

  5. X the Text.Don't ever text and drive, surf the web, or read your email while driving. It's dangerous and against the law in most states. Even voice-to-text isn't risk-free.

  6. Know the law.Familiarize yourself with state and local laws before you get in the car. Some states and localities prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones in addition to texting.

  7. Prepare.If using a GPS device, enter your destination before you start to drive. If you prefer a map or written directions, review them in advance. If you need help while driving, ask a passenger to assist you or pull over to a safe location to change your GPS or review your map/directions.

  8. Secure your pets.Unsecured pets can be a big distraction in the car.

  9. Mind the kids.Pull over to a safe place to address situations involving children in the car.

  10. Focus on driving.Multi-tasking behind the wheel is dangerous. Refrain from eating, drinking, reading, grooming, smoking, and any other activity that takes your mind and eyes off the road.
