To help fight against the preventable deaths distracted driving causes each year, the month of April is recognized as Distracted Driving Awareness Month by the National Safety Council (NSC). During this month we are urged to educated and spread awareness of how to end fatalities and crashes caused by distracted driving.
There are many resources to help you spread the word and raise awareness in your workplace, and community:
- The Department of Transportation (DOT) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) work to reduce the threats of distracted driving and raise awareness of distracted driving hazards. Both provide resources on their extension websites for distracted driving; Distraction.gov and stoptextsstopwrecks.org. These sites provide statistics, distracted driving news, fact sheets, tips, white papers, research findings, as well as downloadable posters, logos, Facebook and Twitter avatars, posters, infographics, and videos to assist in building awareness amongst your workforce.
- The NSC first recognized and established April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Its site offers a variety of ways to get involved; take a pledge to drive cell phone free, sharable cell phone distracted driving infographics, 2014 campaign materials, videos, and reports.
