April 1 marks the start of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a time to reflect and commit to focusing on our roads. This annual event was launched in 2012 by the National Safety Council and has since grown into an international effort. Distracted driving is a serious issue that affects us all, whether we are behind the wheel or a pedestrian crossing the street. Throughout this month, we will be raising awareness of this important issue and encouraging everyone to take action to stay safe on our roads. By pledging to put away our phones while driving, we can make a difference in reducing distracted driving-related accidents and fatalities.
