Driver distraction and inattention is responsible for about 25% of all accidents on Saskatchewan roads. It's also cited as the 2nd highest contributing factor in fatal collisions.
Some of the most common driver distractions include:
- using a cellphone or smartphone
- eating and drinking
- talking to passengers
- reading, including maps
- using a navigation system or GPS
- watching a video
- adjusting a radio, CD or MP3 player
Our driver distraction public awareness campaigns are created to educate drivers about the seriousness of driving when distracted.
