Distracted Driver Awareness Month

(April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month)…The Theme; It’s Not Worth It.

To save lives and educate all Californians, especially young drivers, about the dangers of distracted driving, the California Office of Traffic Safety, California Highway Patrol, Impact Teen Drivers, and more than 200 law enforcement agencies statewide are working together on increased education and enforcement efforts for National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April. Throughout the month, El Centro Police Department and other law enforcement agencies will focus on educating the public about the dangers of driving distracted through local media interviews, visits to schools, and traffic safety presentations. In addition, two dates, April 1 and the 15th, have been earmarked for special statewide high visibility enforcement days for all law enforcement agencies that are participating in the national traffic safety campaign.
