TxDOT campaign targets distracted driving

It has taken a long time to convince most people that wearing a seat belt is so important, and it’s the law. Now state officials continue to encourage drivers to quit texting while behind the wheel. Texas Department of Public Safety officials report about one in five crashes on Texasroadways involves distracted driving, despite a state law that banned texting while driving back in 2017. Now, a statewide campaign kicked off Tuesday with the theme of “It Can Wait” to educate Texans about the dangers of driving while being distracted. TxDOT Executive Director James Bass said the message is no longer just a public safety suggestion to urge Texans to avoid distraction while operating a vehicle – it is to remind them of the law that now forbids such activity. Mr. Bass added that one life lost is one too many and distracted driving is completely preventable.TxDOT officials say the statewide texting-while-driving ban could be helping a little. According to recent data, the number of crashes involving distracted driving in Texas decreased by six percent when comparing the 12-month periods before and after the statewide texting-while-driving ban took effect on September 1, 2017. Again, TxDOT is encouraging drivers to quit texting while behind the wheel through the state’s “It Can Wait” campaign. State leaders say they are using the campaign and other efforts to encourage drivers to make safer choices while behind the wheel. Of note, since November 8, 2000, at least one person has died on Texas roadways every single day. TxDOT officials are asking all Texans to commit to driving safely to help end the streak of daily deaths on the state’s roadways.
