Distracted Driving

Teens - join us on Wednesdays at 4 pm for a free series hosted by AAA to learn about driving safety on July 14, July 21 and July 28. Come to one, two or all three workshops.

This program is designed to help teens understand the risks of distractions. You'll get tips to avoid becoming a distracted driver. "Drivers spend more than half their time focused on things other than driving" — AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

Every day, motorists who read or send a text while driving take their eyes off the road for up to 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the entire length of a football field with your eyes shut. Texting - along with other activities like phone calls, eating, drinking, setting your GPS or working your car's entertainment system - takes your mind and your eyes off the road.
