Attorneys serving the South Bay Area and San Francisco including Redondo Beach, Torrance, Manhattan Beach and Nearby Cities

Distracted driving is among the most common causes of car accidents in Los Angeles and across the country. Every year, tens of thousands of Americans are killed and many more injured as a result of distracted driving.

With that in mind, the National Safety Council has declared April to be National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. The NSC is providing free materials you can share with your social networks throughout the month. You can sign up for these materials here.

Distracted Driving Awareness Month is an excellent occasion to take a step back and reflect on how you drive and what you can change. Today's world offers more distractions than ever, and the temptation to call, text or check e-mails while behind the wheel is immense.

However, putting down the phone and focusing on the road is absolutely vital. In fact, it could save your life. Operating a vehicle is a dangerous task, and it requires your full attention. Don't put yourself and everyone else in danger by driving while distracted.
