The AAA Foundation and AAA have designated October 2 to 8, 2011, as “Heads Up Driving Week” to get drivers to remove distractions and focus only on the road. These organizations are asking drivers to Take The Pledge:

I pledge to drive distraction-free, with the goal to permanently reduce my distracted driving habits. I will spread the word about driving distraction-free among my family and friends encouraging them to resist distracting behaviors while driving.

You can take find the Pledge here. Additional information about this Week and distracted driving can be found on AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s website.

At Lapin Law Offices we encourage everyone take this Pledge. We did.
