April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. In support of this traffic safety initiative, the Nevada Highway Patrol reminds drivers that taking your eyes off the road for even one second can change your life or someone else’s life forever.
Distracted driving includes anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving. This may be talking or texting, but can also include eating and drinking; talking to people in your vehicle; fiddling with the stereo, entertainment, or navigation system; or reaching for something in the back seat. It is important to always keep your eyes on the road for the safety of yourself and others.
Anything that takes your undivided attention from the task of driving is a distraction. Put down the distractions and drive safe, Nevada.
