During the month of April, organizations all over get together with the same goal of encouraging everyone to safely reach their destination by driving with focus. This year, through the “Just Drive” campaign, sponsored by “Wheels,” Distracted Driving Awareness Month is putting safety first and distracted driving through text messages, friends under the influence and more in the back seat.

According to the National Safety Council 2016 statistics, as many as 40,000 individuals died on roadways in the U.S. This is a 6 percent increase from the year 2015 and 14 percent from 2014. In 53 years, it’s the most drastic two-year increase.
