Calif. OTS Hosts Distracted Driving Education Event

The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) recently hosted a distracted driving education event in Sacramento, as part of a larger effort to inform the public on the dangers of distractions behind the wheel.

April 15, 2019—The California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) hosted a distracted driving education event April 12 at Sacramento’s Inderkum High School as part of a larger effort to inform the public on the dangers of distracted driving.

Hundreds of high school students had the opportunity to meet with traffic safety experts to learn about how they can stay safe behind the wheel and avoid distractions.

According to a 2018 public opinion survey conducted by the OTS and University of California, Berkeley, nearly half of all drivers surveyed said distracted driving because of texting or talking is their biggest safety concern on roads.

April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and the OTS is joining law enforcement and other traffic safety partners to highlight the importance of traveling free of distractions, whether in a car, on a bike or on foot. The OTS will be running a distracted driving campaign on TV and digital platforms throughout the month of April as part of our new initiative, “Go Safely, California,” which serves as an educational resource on safer ways for Californians to arrive at their destination.
