April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Did you know that in the time it takes to send an average text message, a car traveling 60 mph will travel the length of a football field?

Drivers have less than one second on average to react to an urgent situation on the road. Looking down or away for even a few seconds is the equivalent of driving blindfolded…and can put a driver in a very dangerous situation for themselves and others.

Don’t make a life-altering mistake because of distracted driving!

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the City of Lakewood will use this time to educate our residents about the different types of distractions…including some you may not be aware of or conscious of.

The City of Lakewood wants our residents to be safe, whether they are driving, bicycling or walking in our community.

Stay tuned throughout the month of April for more tips on avoiding distracted driving. Stay safe Lakewood!
