Distracted drivers are responsible for thousands of fatal crashes each year. In an effort to curb distracted driving, April has been designated as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the NSC or National Safety Council relays a message to all drivers: starting now, put down your cellphones.

Janet Froetscher, NSC president and CEO, hopes that people will take the pledge this month of April to keep roadways safer and help prevent unnecessary tragedies. She also states that it’s about time to change the social acceptance of using cellphones while driving.

In March 2010, the U.S. House of Representatives established the National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This resolution was formed in memory of a young girl named Erica Forney, who was killed by a distracted driver.

Our Treasure Coast auto accident attorneys urge all Florida drivers to make April the month you put down your cellphone and stay focused while driving.
