Distracted Driving Awareness Month takes place each April to bring national attention to the dangers of distracted driving. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2019, distracted drivers caused 3,142 deaths and many thousands of injuries on America’s roads and highways. That’s almost 9 people killed and hundreds injured every day. Washington State Traffic Safety Council data shows that distracted driving causes 30% of fatalities and 23% of serious injuries in crashes in the State of Washington.
