Safety Spotlight Oregon Traffic Fatalities
April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month

It started in early 2015 and did not relent in 2016: a tragic spike in traffic fatalities in Oregon that harkens back to older times, when people didn’t wear seatbelts and driving fast was cool. Distracted driving has become an epidemic in Oregon. At least every 3 hours someone in Oregon is injured by distracted driving behavior. It's going to take more than just talking about it for people to put down the phone and focus on the task at hand: driving safely. Learn more about the work safety advocates in Oregon are doing to eliminate this costly behavior.
