  Beware of Distractions When You Drive...  
  From 2003-2012, more than 1,600 people were killed in crashes caused by distracted drivers. Such distractions include:  
 
Talking on a cellular phone
Tuning a radio or CD player
Applying makeup
Talking to other passengers
Tending to children or pets
Eating and drinking
Cell phones are one of many distractions both inside and outside the vehicle which can cause crashes.

Drivers who talk or text on a handheld cell phone while driving face a fine.
Driving requires your full attention.
