April is National Distracted Driving Awareness month and the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet joins the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in reminding drivers that distracted driving can be a killer.
Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a driver's attention from the road ahead. These include: eating, grooming, texting, or using a cell or smartphone.
Studies suggest that the reaction time for someone using a cell phone while driving is delayed just as badly as that of a driver legally impaired by alcohol. That goes for even a hands-free device.
Drivers are also 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash if they text while driving. And in Kentucky, texting while driving is illegal. Remember, one text or call can wreck it all.
