The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports more than 3,300 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver in 2011 and almost 400,000 more were injured. April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says there are a lot of distractions out there.
Even the events of the day running through your mind can divert your attention from the road. Paying attention can work both ways.
Joski says his officers are always looking out for distracted drivers. Don’t get caught daydreaming, or you might just become another statistic.
