According to the National Safety Council, every day at least 9 Americans die and 100 are injured in motor vehicle crashes caused by distracted driving. Distractions include everything from cell phones to dashboard touch screens and other in-vehicle technologies. This has become such a national epidemic that the NSC is asking all drivers to take the Pledge to Just Drive. More information can be found at www.nsc.org.
