April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month.  In 2019, distracted driving killed 3,142 people – a 10% increase from 2018. Young drivers seem more prone to using their phones while driving. According to NHTSA research from 2017, drivers 16 to 24 years old have been observed using handheld electronic devices while driving at higher rates than older drivers have since 2007. But make no mistake: It Is not just young people who are driving distracted, since drivers in other age groups do not lag far behind.
