Distracted driving is defined as is the act of driving while engaged in other activities—such as looking after children, texting, talking on the phone or to a passenger, watching videos, eating, rubbernecking or reading. These activities take the drivers attention away from the road. – Wikipedia

At one time or another we’ve all been distracted by something while driving or have glanced at our phones when  we know shouldn’t. It’s extremely dangerous to use electronics behind the wheel, recently I’ve been putting my cell in zipper pocket of purse so I won’t be tempted to check it.

Police will using marked and unmarked vehicles to spot distracted drivers and ticket if caught.  Let’s make our roads safe and pledge to refrain from using devices while behind the wheel.
