April is National Distracted Driving Awareness Month and TxDOT wants to encourage Texans to join the national effort to put away their phones while driving.

TxDOT hopes that drivers will make a habit of not using their cell phone while driving. In Texas, nearly one in four crashes involves driver distraction. TxDOT warns that distracted driving is unsafe for drivers and others on the road and can result in traffic crashes and fatalities.

Despite these dangers, drivers engage in potentially distracting secondary tasks 30 percent of the time their vehicles are in motion, according to their report. 

In Texas, 81,103 crashes involved distraction in a vehicle, driver inattention or cell-phone use in 2011, and 361 of these crashes were fatal.
