Distracted Driving in Chilliwack got the bucket treatment this week

The Boston roads where the most distracted driving events occurred all shared a common theme they are all heavily congested during rush hour which may be why drivers get distracted by their phones so often as they sit in traffic

However, she warns everyone that when you're driving, your focus should be on the road.

DriveWell turns safe driving into a game using the phones sensors to measure data while driving, something the company says can curb distracted driving.

To better understand the dangers and consequences of smart phone distracted driving, AT&T is bringing its virtual reality simulator to more than 50 California schools and communities for National Distracted Driving Awareness Month this year as part of its IT CAN WAIT initiative. This includes about 3.5% of the state's fatal crashes and 9% of injury crashes. "The cell phone is the main distraction and most obvious one".

Smyth said there has been an increase in distracted driving 3,477 people were killed killed and an estimated 391,000 were injured in 2015.


"Just a simple text, that five to ten seconds you're looking down at the phone to send that text, that's a time a child can run out in front of you", said Corporal Eric Henry with the Mississippi Highway Patrol. Officers will be stopping and ticketing anyone who is caught texting and driving. "Don't just accept it because everyone else is doing it".

Until then, TXDOT advises to pull over to a safe location if you must talk or text. When you text and drive, you are a danger to everyone around you.

The Connecticut Department of Transportation urges you to put your phone down when you get behind the wheel.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 71 percent of young people admit to sending a text while driving. When you get behind the wheel, be an example to your family and friends by putting your phone away.
