Info You Can Use – FCC’s The Dangers of Distracted Driving

The Federal Communication Commission has a useful page on the Dangers of Distracted Driving that consolidates links to a number of resources and provide the following three key actions people can for themselves and other drivers they know:

Give clear instructions – Give new drivers simple, clear instructions not to use their wireless devices while driving. Before new drivers get their licenses, discuss the fact that taking their eyes off the road – even for a few seconds – could cost someone injury or even death.

Lead by example – No one should text and drive. Be an example for others and if you need to text or talk on the phone, pull over to a safe place. Set rules for yourself and your household regarding distracted driving.

Become informed and be active – Tell family, friends and organizations to which you belong about the importance of driving without distractions. Take information to your kids’ schools and ask that it be shared with students and parents.
