April is Distracted Driving Awareness month. State and local police will aggressively ticket drivers who are using their cell phones (for calling or texting) when driving. U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx stated, “Distracted driving kills, there is no excuse for it, and it must stop. Across the country, we’re putting distracted drivers on notice: U Drive. U Text. U Pay. Texting and driving will at least cost you the price of a ticket but it could very well cost you your life or someone else’s.” Due to the dangers of texting and driving, 45 states have banned text messaging for drivers of all ages. To prevent distracted driving, drivers should turn off electronic devices and/or put them out of reach before getting behind the wheel.
