What is Distracted Driving?
According to Distraction.gov, distracted driving is ANY activity that requires us to shift our focus, including common things such as eating and playing with our radios. Driving is not a multitasking action that we can do safely without thinking. Driving is a skill that requires your full attention!
We Decided We needed to Do something
Education about distracted driving doesn't need to just be given to those who are already behind the wheel. It must also be given to those who learn from our habits; our children.
That is why we created our Everything Can Wait! storybook for our children. These are the future drivers, the ones who can help while they're sitting in the passenger seat and apply this knowledge to the driver's seat.
