April is recognized as National Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
Junior Police Academy, as well as community partners and law enforcement agencies nationwide, are working together to make the roads safer.
The campaign aims to end distracted driving through education and raise awareness about the associated dangers. The goal is to change motorist behaviors and save lives, not just in the month of April, but year-round.
To better understand the dangers and consequences of smartphone distracted driving, AT&T offers an online educational resource: https://www.itcanwait.com/
"We encourage everyone to take the IT CAN WAIT pledge – to keep your eyes on the road, not your phone – and help keep our roads safe. No text, e-mail, or social media post is worth a life."
