Dangers-of-DD

Distracted driving is an epidemic on America’s roadways. In 2012, 3,328 people were killed and an estimated 421,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver. It is clear that texting and cell phone use takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel and your focus off driving – putting yourself and others in danger.

The safety of U-Haul customers is very important to us. It is evident that one of the most effective ways to stay safe when driving is to avoid distractions, specifically texting. It is every one of our responsibility to show restraint and to simply not text while driving.
