April 2023 Press Release - Distrated Driving Awareness

Safe Communities announced today that there have been 3 fatal crashes in Wood County to date, compared to 2 last year at this time.

April is National Distracted Driving Month in Ohio and the Nation.  It’s a very simple message that we so often overlook.  Make the promise to yourself and your community today!

  • I pledge to never text, post, stream, or engage in any form of digital distraction behind the wheel.
  • I take this pledge to save lives, prevent tragic crashes, and make the roads safe for everyone.
  • I pledge to step out from behind my screen and live more every day to change our culture of distracted living and digital dependence.
