April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

But more than 30 studies show hands-free devices don’t make drivers any safer because the brain remains distracted by the phone conversation. When talking on a cell phone, drivers can miss seeing up to half of what's around them, such as traffic lights, stop signs and pedestrians.Learn More
