Stuff You Need to Know

SADD - Though traffic has dropped significantly since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our roads have only gotten more dangerous. On a typical day, more than 700 people are still injured in distracted driving crashes. Talking on a cell phone – even hands-free – or texting or programming an in-vehicle infotainment system diverts your attention away from driving. Keep yourself and others around you safe and #justdrive.
 
Join SADD during Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April to help make our roadways and our people safer. Commit to driving distraction-free by taking the SADD Just Drive Pledge.
