April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Today, cell phones account for nearly 25 percent of all auto accidents according to distraction.gov.

More than nine people are killed and over a thousand more are injured every day in crashes that involve a distracted driver due to people continuing to use their cell phones while driving, handheld or hands-free. The national safety council is urging those you care about to stop using cell phones while driving.

Inform people who call you while driving that you’d be happy to continue the conversation once you have reached your destination.

Understand the dangers of the mental distraction to the brain and tell others about the dangers of cell phone distracted driving.
