Please try to avoid distracted driving for your own safety, the safety of your passengers and all of the other drivers out on the roads.
• Don’t drink & drive, ever
• Don’t drive with headphones on or ear buds in
• Don’t get distracted and look in your back seat to either speak to someone or reprimand a child
• Don’t text while driving or use your mobile device at all while behind the wheel

Federal law has already made it illegal for truck and bus drivers to text while driving. Massachusetts’s law prohibits drivers from texting, and those who are under the age of 18 are prohibited from using their cell phone while driving. If you chose to use your cell phone while driving you can be fined.
