“Drivers simply do not realize the dangers that are posed when they take their eyes and minds off the road and their hands off the wheel and focus on activities other than driving,” said Carol T.

AUSTIN, Texas, April 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/—There’s good news and bad news on distracted driving in Texas. Crashes and fatalities are down slightly, and that’s good. But, distracted driving incidences still cause thousands of crashes each year, and most drivers believe that using an electronic device while driving doesn’t affect performance.

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) joins its safety partners around the state to encourage drivers to refrain from engaging in non-driving activities while on the road, particularly cell phone use and texting. In its second year, TxDOT’s Talk. Text. Crash. outreach campaign is designed to raise awareness of the consequences of distracted driving.
