California Cracks down on Distracted Drivers
April has been named Distracted Driving Awareness Month in the state of California to help remind drivers of the often ignored statewide legislation against using cell phones while driving.
“We take the issue of distracted driving very, very seriously.” said LAPD Lieutenant Ron Katona to KTLA. “The ongoing, irresponsible practice of drivers using their cell phones and texting has to stop. ”
Studies revealed that texting is as detrimental to a driver’s reaction time as having the blood alcohol content of a drunk driver. They also showed that drivers under the age of 20 have the highest proportion of distraction-related fatal crashes, according to KTLA.Tell us what you think in the comments below or on:
