Distracted Driving

Drive Safely! Don't be a Distracted Driver.

What is distracted driving? Distracted driving includes anything such as talking on a cell phone, sending a text message or e-mail, changing the radio station, eating, drinking, or reaching for something while driving.

Driver distractions and inattentive driving are the cause of approximately one out of every four motor vehicle crashes.

Sheriff Mendrick hopes that all drivers will consider the consequences of distracted driving and commit to driving safely on our roadways.
