Distracted Driving Awareness Month
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has designated April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. We would like to remind everyone that not only is Distracted Driving illegal but it is VERY dangerous. The facts dont lie!
- Ten percent of fatal crashes, 18 percent of injury crashes, and 16 percent of all motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2013 were reported as distraction-affected crashes, which are defined as any crash in which a driver was identified as distracted at the time of the crash.
- Ten percent of all drivers 15 to 19 years old involved in fatal crashes were reported as distracted at the time of the crashes. This age group has the largest proportion of drivers who were distracted at the time of the crash.
- In 2013 244 Americans aged 15 to 19 were killed in distraction-affected crashes.
Please put the phone down and pay attention to the road so you dont hurt yourself and anyone else!
Thank you to everyone that came out on Saturday April 4th to support our annual hoagie sale. The weather was sunny but a little chilly. Our hoagie sale coincides with the Little League Opeing Day parade which was a great turnout. Good Luck to all the little league teams this season!
