Distracted driving is dangerous. While it may not seem that way when that VERY IMPORTANT text or call comes in, it can really cause serious injury. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that approximately 1,161 people are injured per day because of a distracted driver. That’s a lot of accidents. While some car companies are working on driver assistance technology that will be able to minimize the impact of distracted driving (both literally and figuratively) we aren’t there yet. The only real way to prevent car accidents is to to increase driver alertness. What are they saying on social media about Distracted Driving Awareness Month 2017? Check out our top picks below.
