Everyone’s heard the old adage – the only guarantees in life are death and taxes. I would think that both happening simultaneously would probably ruin your day.
What goes here?
CNN reports there is actually an increased likelihood of deaths from car crashes on tax day, probably caused by increased stress and driver inattention, which has become a huge problem.
In Ohio over the last 2 years, distracted driving accounted for more than 31,000 wrecks, 7,800 injuries, and 70 deaths. Though lawmakers debated a statewide texting while driving law earlier this year, Ohio is one of only 8 states that does not have a specific ban. Of course, Ohio law does require all drivers to be in control of their cars at all times as a general rule.
What does this mean to you:
April is Distracted Driving Awareness month. Any distraction from the primary goal of driving creates unnecessary risk to your passengers and other drivers on the road.
Take a minute, slow down, and be safe out there.
