We are all very busy and weekends are especially packed with errands and places to go.
The Laurel Police Department reminds every driver, “there is no text worth your life or anyone else’s.”PLEASE keep your eyes on the road and put your phone down while driving.
Be the driver who never loses focus behind the wheel, because distracted driving can happen while using a cell phone, but also using any hand-held devices, talking with passengers, eating, drinking, reading, adjusting the radio, or using a navigation system while driving.
“Nine people in the United States are killed every day in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver,” according to the CDC.
“The popularity of wireless devices has had some unintended and sometimes deadly consequences. An alarming number of traffic accidents are linked to driving while distracted, including the use of cell phones while driving, resulting in injury and loss of life. The national statistics are sobering,” according to the FCC.
