April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month: Are You Driving Safe?

April 3, 2017 •

Distracted Driving Awareness Month

The National Safety Council observes April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month in order to draw attention to the risks of unsafe driving. Distracted driving is unsafe driving. Today’s technology and devices are pulling for our attention, but NSC and ProClip want to empower you to put safety first and focus on what really matters, safe driving. In the month of April, ProClip is giving away two mounting solutions. Visit the ProClip Facebook page to enter once for two chances to win.

Over the past few years, distracted driving incidents have increased. Distracted driving ranges from texting, adjusting the radio, eating, and many other things; all of which affect your ability to react quickly.

Distracted Driving Facts

  • Cell phone use while driving causes 1.6 million crashes each year
  • Texting while driving is 6x more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk
  • Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused while texting and driving
  • More than 8 people are killed each day in the U.S. due to distracted driving

Many states have passed laws on hands-free texting and driving. Do you know your state’s laws? It’s important to know the laws in your state and in the states where you drive, not only to avoid a ticket, but also to keep you and your passengers safe on the road. To help guide you, we put together a short video and an infographic map to outline hands-free texting and driving laws by state.
