Get Over Your SELFIE: Billboards Promote Safe Driving Habits

Posted by Kelsie Sebreros on Jun 12, 2018 11:30:00 AM

In 2016 alone, 3,450 people were killed from accidents attributed to texting and driving. During daylight hours, approximately 481,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving, with teens reported as the largest age group distracted at the time of fatal crashes.*
