April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month
According to the National Safety Council, every day, at least nine Americans die and 100 are injured in distracted driving crashes. Cell phones, dashboard touchscreens, voice commands and other in-vehicle technologies pose a threat to our safety. The consequences of those distractions are not worth the convenience they offer. Ignore the distractions and #justdrive to keep us all safer on the roads.
Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April is a united effort to recognize the dangers of and eliminate preventable deaths from distracted driving. Join us to help save lives.
Remind your drivers that distraction by a bus driver can cause an accident. More importantly, remind your bus drivers to drive defensively to avoid accidents caused by the motoring public who are not as well trained or aware of the dangers of distracted driving. Check out the distracted driving powerpoint presentation on the NYAPT website. This is a great training presentation for your drivers!

Above all, be safe out there!
