The Shreya R. Dixit Memorial Foundation advocates safe and distraction-free driving practices, encouraging drivers to be mindful, and educates the community on the dangers of distracted driving.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Thousands die needlessly each year because people continue to use their cell phones while driving, handheld or hands-free. Join the National Safety Council this April in urging those you care about to:

  • Stop using cell phones while driving
  • Recognize that hands-free devices offer no safety benefit
  • Understand the dangers of the cognitive distraction to the brain
