April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month 

Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating, drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with all those screens and buttons- anything that takes your attention away from safely driving.

FYI: #1 distraction while driving is ‘Texting’.

Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for approximately 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.  https://www.nhtsa.gov/risky-driving/distracted-driving
