Distracted Driving Awareness Month — let’s hope people take notice

With nearly 60,000 crashes and 192 fatalities in 2016 caused by distracted driving, Gov. Matt Bevin is again drawing attention to the seriousness of the issue by proclaiming April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month.

Jim Howell believes strongly in the Lifesaver App and that it is having a positive effect on savings lives by cutting down on district driving. Here’s the link to last April’s article by Karla:
