NHTSA Launches Awareness Campaign on Distracted Driving

The slogan is “Put the Phone Away or Pay.”

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched a safe driving campaign this month, urging drivers to avoid distracted driving. 

Dubbed the “Put the Phone Away or Pay” campaign, the NHTSA is highlighting the data regarding the phenomenon. Collisions and deaths caused by distracted driving continue to rise, with 289,310 people injured and 3,308 killed due to distracted drivers in 2022.

“Distracted driving is extremely dangerous,” NHTSA Deputy Administrator Sophie Shulman said. “Distraction comes in many forms, but it is also preventable. Our rebranded campaign reminds everyone to ‘Put the Phone Away or Pay,‘ because distracted driving can cost you in fines – or even cost your life or the life of someone else on the road.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Deputy Administrator Shulman to seek God’s direction as she fulfills her role in the NHTSA.
  • For Transportation Department officials as they promote public and traffic safety initiatives.
