In honor of Distracted Driving Awareness Month in April, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) said they are joining the “One Text or Call Could Wreck It All” campaign sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in an effort to make roadways safer.

The KOHS pledges to help spread the message that distracted drivers are a danger not only to themselves, but to everyone on the road. According to NHTSA, in 2009 alone, nearly 5,500 people were killed and a half million more individuals were injured in distracted driving crashes. That same year, 20% of injury-related crashes involved reports of distracted driving.
