Distracted Driving Awareness Month
April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and Honda working hard to raise awareness with its “Remove the Distractions” social media campaign of short videos and informative posts. The series is meant to raise awareness about distracted driving and the dangers therein.
Honda’s “Remove the Distractions” series consists of four short 10-second videos, which explore a range of driving experiences when a text message pops up on the driver’s cell phone. The video cleverly takes away the surrounding outdoor landscape when the text message appears, blocking out the beautiful scenery you miss when you’re distracted on your phone while driving. Honda ends the videos with the line, “When your attention is on your phone, you miss what happens on the road.” Not only do you miss out on enjoying the outdoor landscapes of your driving experience, but you can also put yourself in dangerous road situations.
Throughout Distracted Driving Awareness Month, Honda will be posting statistics and information about how common distracted driving is in out society, encouraging drivers to “Remove the Distractions” to have safer, more enjoyable driving experiences.
When you get behind the wheel, you are charged with task of transporting yourself and all your passengers safely and enjoyably. We encourage all drivers to make the best choices to achieve this end, which includes eliminating as many distractions as possible while driving. This doesn’t mean you can’t stay entertained and connected while on the go, just use your smartphone in a responsible way while driving: connect it to your infotainment system if possible so you never have to pick it up, and don’t respond to messages until you’ve arrived at your destination.
