When you get behind the wheel, putting away your phone should be just as automatic as putting on your seat belt. If your attention is anywhere other than on the road, you’re a danger to yourself and others. Always drive distraction-free.
#UDrive #UText #UPay
Distracted driving is one of the fastest growing safety issues on the roads today. Nationally nearly 3,200 people were killed in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers in 2017 (most current data available). Now through September 30, law enforcement agencies across North Dakota are increasing patrols during the U Drive. U Text. U Pay. enforcement campaign to remove distracted drivers from the roads and save lives.
Remind your colleagues, friends, students, and loved ones to #DriveDistractionFree.
Also - September 20-26, 2020 is National Child Passenger Safety Week. Every 32 seconds in 2018, one child under the age of 13 in a passenger vehicle was involved in a crash. Many times, injuries and deaths can be prevented by proper use of car seats, boosters, and seat belts. Secure them in the correct seat for their age, height and weight.
