Brochure warns against distracted driving
The Oregon Fatality Assessment and Control Evaluation Program at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland recently issued a new brochure (.pdf file) on the hazards of distracted driving.
The publication features stories of three worker fatalities linked to distracted driving and provides safety recommendations, including:
- Consider turning off cell phones while driving.
- Do not text and drive.
- While driving, avoid talking or thinking that requires concentration, such as numerical calculations.
