Blueprint to End Distracted Driving

Jonathan Hernandez8 months ago

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and today on the blog, we take a look at a blueprint that may be followed in order to make sure that there are less and less wrongful deaths as a result of distracted driving every year.

Blueprint for Ending Distracted Driving

Distraction.gov has created what they describe as a blueprint for ending distracted driving, and it lays out a plan to build on the progress that is already being made to help people in office and in leadership to come up with more and more forward-thinking strategies to end the distracted driving epidemic in the United States.

Every year in the United States, there are about 3,000 wrongful deaths of people who were killed in distracted driving accidents, and it has been proven that distractions impair judgement, reflexes, motor skills, and the ability to drive safely.

In Order to End Distracted Driving We Need to

  • Create a better understanding of the problem of distracted driving.
  • Reduce the amount of distracted from devices inside the vehicle.
  • Improve driver behavior behind the wheel.

Perhaps the most effective way to end, or at least lower the amount of people who die every year in the United States in distracted driving accidents is to bring awareness of the issue through campaigns like Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration indicates that young drivers are the ones who are most likely to drive while distracted, so awareness should begin at the teenage level.
