Law enforcement officers across Arkansas have pledged their united support by participating in the national awareness campaign to stop Distracted Driving.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , which includes a much broader category of distractions in its reports on distracted driving, said 3,477 people died in distracted driving accidents in 2015 and 391,000 were injured.

"We're out there for reasons of public safety".

"You can see the dangers of him being on a cell phone", Ross said.

"People tend to think of texting as the key concern and cellphone use as the key concern", said Christopher Hayes, second vice president, transportation, risk control for Travelers Cos.

According to the news release, a survey of Washington drivers found 96 percent agree that using a cellphone while driving is unsafe, 88 percent said they don't check social media while driving and most said they don't read incoming texts.

Local police remind residents that if they need to text while driving, they should pull over and park their vehicle in a safe place first, and remind family and friends to never text and drive. "It's not a new phenomenon at all". A year ago alone in OH, there were 4,000 distracted driving crashes that claimed 51 lives.

Experts encouraged employers to take steps to ensure that their employees are not posing a danger to themselves or others on the road by driving while distracted. "Again, you've got to make sure that whatever they're doing in that conversation with you is not distracting, as well".

Farrell said people generally take 1.5 seconds to react to something like a driver slamming on the brakes in front of them, or a vehicle crossing the yellow line.

"People don't recall details", he said.

Distracted driving can be anything that keeps you from focusing on driving, including eating, drinking, personal grooming, reading, pets and cellular phones.

According to the information just released 88% of drivers said distracted driving is on the rise, topping other behaviors like aggressive driving, drivers using drugs and drunk driving.

Cruz said it's tough for officers to cite drivers for texting because of the revised code.
