MAPA April 2019 PSA

 

National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

In Minnesota, between 2013-2017, distracted or inattentive driving was a contributing factor in one in five crashes, resulting in an average of 53 deaths and 216 serious injuries each year. The Department of Traffic Safety Office of Traffic Safety estimates these numbers are under-reported due to law enforcement’s challenge in determining distraction as a crash factor.

 

MAPA cares about you and your family’s safety and offers these suggestions to combat distracted driving:

  • Cell phones — turn off cell phones or place them out of reach to avoid the urge to dial or answer.
  • Music and other controls — pre-program favorite radio stations for easy access and arrange music (mp3 player/CDs/tapes) in an easy-to-access spot. Adjust mirrors and heat/AC before traveling.
  • Navigation — designate a passenger to serve as a co-pilot to help with directions. If driving alone, map out destinations in advance, and pull over to study a map.
  • Eating and drinking — try to avoid food/beverage, at least messy foods, and be sure food and drinks are secured.
  • Children — teach children the importance of good behavior in a vehicle and do not underestimate how distracting it can be to tend to children while driving.
  • Passengers — speak up to stop drivers from distracted driving behavior.
  • When making/receiving a call, ask if the person is driving. If so, ask them to call back at a safer time.
