Distracted Driving FACT

Last year in Virginia, 24,350 distraction-related crashes killed 126 people and injured 13,733.* Distracted driving is any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system - anything that draws your focus away from the task of driving. Fiddling with a phone is one of the most dangerous forms of distraction. It involves your hands, eyes, and attention.
