Hamilton Memorial Helps Spread Awareness for Distracted Driving Awareness Week
The Inaugural Illinois Distracted Driving Awareness Week is set to take place April 24th through the 28th. Hamilton Memorial Hospital would like to join in spreading awareness in order to keep our roads safe for everyone.
Texting, kids in the back, eating your lunch, and billboards on the side of the road are just a few examples from the long list of distractions we encounter everyday while driving in the car. In 2009 NHTSA estimated nearly 5,500 people lost their lives and another 448,000 were injured in crashes where various forms of distractions were noted in police reports.
