Motorists across the state of Pennsylvania are constantly spotted engaged in distracted driving practices, sometimes involving a handheld communication device, despite the statewide ban on sending or receiving text messages, and sometimes involving a more traditional form of distraction such as looking in the mirror, eating, or adjusting the stereo system. According to a statement issued by Pennsylvania law enforcement officers, inattentive driving behavior is exhibited by drivers in all age groups. In response to the widespread distracted driving practices exhibited by motorists, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation initiated a public safety advertisement campaign title “Just Drive” for the month of April during National Distracted Driving Awareness Month. According to the safety campaign, selecting music from an mp3 player or radio, sending or reading a text based message or email from a handheld communication device, or any other practice that involves taking your eyes away from the road ahead increases the danger that a driver will be involved in an accident that could lead to severe injuries or death. Motorists, as well as cyclists, pedestrians and anyone else sharing public roadways should refrain from distracting practices to increase safety for everyone on the road. While texting and driving has been recently prohibited by state law, other behaviors can also cause danger for drivers. According to safety experts sending a text message is the equivalent of closing your eyes for five seconds while driving down the roadways.
