April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April is National Distracted Driver Awareness Month – a month dedicated to educating the public about the dangers of distraction and providing resources to help drivers break these bad habits. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that distraction plays a role in a majority of car accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured by a distracted driver, call The Cochran Firm at (800) 843-3476 to schedule a free consultation today.

What is Distracted Driving?
We often think of distracted driving as driving while texting, but that is far from the only dangerous behavior drivers engage in. Distraction can include:
  • Changing a radio station, CD, or MP3 player
  • Looking at or modifying GPS equipment
  • Eating or drinking
  • Applying makeup
  • Reading billboards
Anything that takes your eyes and attention off of the road, no matter how briefly, is a form of distracted driving and places you and everyone else on the road at great risk.
 
The auto injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm strongly support Distracted Driving Awareness Month and encourage you to think about your own driving habits to help reduce your risk of causing a serious accident.
