As you may or may not know, the month of April is recognized by the National Safety Council as distracted driving awareness month. According to the Kentucky DMV, distracted driving in Kentucky consists of “any type of visual, manual or cognitive distraction that diverts a driver’s eyes, hands, and mind away from the task of operating a vehicle.” In 2017, 8,485 of the automobile accidents in Kentucky were attributed to distracted driving. Moreover, according to an analysis of federal statistics by MoneyGeek, Kentucky, unfortunately, is considered one of the top five most dangerous states for distracted driving. Considering the presented facts and the onset of April already under way, now seems like an especially fitting time to discuss and review preventative safety tips to avoid distracted driving.
