TETAF Targets Distracted Driving to Prevent/Reduce Injuries

More than 3,300 people were killed in 2011, and 387,000 were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver, according to separate National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration data. In 2010, motor vehicle crashes caused 36 percent of the fatalities in Texas trauma centers. Transportation-related injuries are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury among individuals ages 15-64.

At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving, While cell phones are a major culprit, anything that takes your mind and attention away from your driving is a distraction.

Recognizing the importance of Texas EMS and trauma professionals speaking out on the dangers of distracted driving, the Injury Prevention and Pediatric Divisions of TETAF selected this as the focus for the organization’s 2013-14 injury prevention campaign
