Lake County Sheriff’s Office using social media to bring awareness about distracted driving

Lake County Sheriff’s Office using social media to bring awareness about distracted driving

"This campaign is necessary, now more than ever, to help combat the growing problem of distracted driving and its deadly results".

"AAA has made traffic safety a priority since 1921, working to make roads, vehicles and drivers safer", said Linda von Quintus, Vice President of Government & Community Affairs, AAA Texas. Noble says this number is concerning because we know the danger associated with texting and driving, yet we are seeing an increase in the population of those who are doing it. The attorneys have more than 50 years of experience practicing law. The law restricts hands-free use to a single touch.

"Cell phones are everywhere in our lives. Tweeting, texting, and posting on social media are hard habits to break", said CHP Commissioner Warren Stanley. "Have them drive you to lunch".

"The problem with texting and driving is that you risk the lives of others and many drivers don't consider the risk to others because they think checking their phones is more important", says Habetz. "Changing those unsafe habits will help make our roadways safer for everyone".

The Tennessee Highway Patrol is using passenger vans this year.

Yassens said the real answer to combat distracted driving would is tougher laws that allow officers to stop anyone they see texting and driving. And, she said, avoid messy foods while driving, as spills can distract. "Do not email. Put the phone away", AAA Mid-Atlantic spokesperson Kathleen Miller said.

Texting while driving is already banned in Georgia, but talking on the phone is allowed.

April had the third highest number of distracted driving crashes in 2017, followed by March and October, respectively.

The federal agency reported that sending or reading a text typically takes a driver's eyes off the road for 5 seconds. "It will take a strong combination of education and enforcement to prevent distracted driving".

Despite their own behavior, 58 percent of the drivers believe talking on a cellphone while driving is unsafe and 78 percent indicated texting while driving is risky.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were almost 37 thousand highway fatalities in 2016.
