People in Encino, Tarzana, Reseda and across the San Fernando Valley are injured in car crashes everyday. In fact, someone is hurt in a car accident every 8 seconds. The National Safety Council has made April Distracted Driving Awareness Month to help reduce the number of collisions. Texting while driving, holding the phone while driving, and using social media significantly contribute to the problem of safety on the roads. Everyone knows that California has made it illegal to use your phone while you are driving, but most of us seem to think that these laws only apply to other people. It is true, that if I was the only person allowed to use my phone while driving, and you all just stayed clear of me, that would probably work. Unfortunately, I am not the only one who wants to use my phone. To be safe, no one should.
Distracted Driving Causes Auto Accidents
The National Safety Council is hosting a fee webinar on April 19, 2017, to help educate people about the dangers of using technology while driving. The course is free and important. The Council also invites everyone to take the pledge to drive cell free. Rather than a meaningless pledge, it invites you to make that pledge directly to your children or other loved ones that are put at risk of being injured in a collision caused by distracted driving.
