With more portable technology now than ever, driver distractions have risen to unprecedented numbers. We live in a world where people expect instant, real-time information 24 hours-a-day and those desires do not stop just because people get behind the wheel. Drivers simply do not realize the dangers that are posed when they take their eyes and minds off the road and their hands off the wheel and focus on activities other than driving. Common sense and personal responsibility are a major part of the solution. We simply can't legislate our way out of this problem. It's up to each and every person to make sure they "Put It Down" and pay attention to road. The risks are simply too high!
