Lee County Sheriffs Office- Reminder Please Drive Safe



Before this day, Sunday, comes to an end, an average of nine people will be killed in distracted driving accidents in the United States. An additional 100 will be injured.

Whether the distraction is technology-based (i.e. cellphones, dashboard touchscreens) or something as simple as eating or searching through a purse, the consequences that can result from distracted driving are life-altering…and often life-ending.

Make a pledge to yourself…to your family…to your friends to avoid driving distractions.

Promise not to:

Have a phone conversation – handheld, hands-free, or via Bluetooth

Text or send Snapchats

Use voice-to-text features in my vehicle’s dashboard system

Update Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo or other social media

Check or send emails

Take selfies or film videos

Input destinations into GPS (while the vehicle is in motion)

Call or message someone else when I know they are driving
