April: Distracted Driver Awareness Month


April is Distracted Driver Awareness Month. So WorkSafeNB is encouraging workers to put away phones or other mobile devices while on the road. Texting is the number one source of distracted driving crashes, but other causes include checking email, applying make-up and reaching for an object. WorkSafeNB recommends storing hand-held devices out of sight and reach while driving. And don’t forget—it’s illegal to use hand-held devices while driving in New Brunswick.
