Distractions cause injuries and lost lives

April 2018

Tennessee — April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and we’re asking our fans and friends to pitch in and do their part to help make our roads safer by “Putting It In Park” when it comes to distracted driving.

While the use of technology behind the wheel is an increasingly common cause of distracted driving incidents across the country and Tennessee, distracted driving can be created by anything that diverts a driver’s attention away from the road and the inherently dangerous task of driving.

Distractions can include looking after children or pets, eating, reading, applying makeup, or playing with the radio.

Distracted driving causes injuries, raises insurance costs, and, worst of all, costs lives
