Are you a Distracted Driver?

Did you know that according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), of the nearly 33,000 roadway fatalities in 2012, there were 3,328 fatalities and approximately 421,000 injuries in distracted driving-related crashes?

There is someone in my life who I love very much but she is an incredibly distracted driver. In fact, it scares me to drive with her and I honestly worry about her. She frequently texts while driving and often times I catch her flipping through her phone or looking at texts.

This worries me a lot and I have mentioned it to her several times. My wish for her is that she would put her phone in her purse or some place that she cannot reach it and Decide to Drive. My other wish for her is that she would decide that the risks of texting while driving far outweigh the need to be constantly available and attached to a phone.


The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the Auto Alliance want to increase awareness about the risks of distracted driving with their “Decide to Drive” campaign. The Decide to Drive program aims to empower drivers and passengers to speak up about distracted driving, continue the conversation at home, work and play, and reduce distracted behaviors behind the wheel.

Orthopaedic surgeons—the specialists who put bones and limbs back together after road crashes and traumas—along with our partners, the automakers, would rather help all drivers “decide to drive” each time they get in the car and to keep bones and limbs intact. Remember, the most advanced safety feature of any vehicle is the driver. The AAOS and the Auto Alliance urges all drivers to keep their most sophisticated safety features engaged at all times: eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
