"I took my eyes off the road for only a second - and then, it happened."
Distracted driving is a common occurrence. More than 53,000 distracted driving-related crashes occurred last year in Kentucky, resulting in more than 15,000 injuries and 199 fatalities.
To address this problem, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety recently kicked-off a "Distracted Driving is Deadly Driving" campaign aimed at changing driver behavior. The campaign ties in perfectly with the nationwide effort to reduce distracted driving crashes.
