April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Many distractions exist while driving.  Distracted driving is any activity that diverts a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving.  A major distraction while driving is using a cellphone or mobile device, just one call or text, using the internet, or viewing  the music playlist, can change the life of the driver, passengers, and others.  It's likely the most dangerous activity you do each day.

While driving on State business, on Campus in a State vehicle or electric cart, or for personal driving, please do not:

  • Use a cellphone or smartphone
  • Text
  • Reading
  • Eat or drink
  • Grooming
  • Talk to other passengers
  • Adjusting a radio, CD Player, or MP3 player

Lead by example ~ no one should talk, text and drive.  Be an example for others, if you need to talk and/or text, please pull over to a safe place. 

Just Drive and Drive Safely.
