  The month of April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. Because it involves cognitive, manual, and visual distraction, fiddling with your phone while driving is extremely dangerous.  We ask everyone to make a special effort to set the phone aside while driving.  We here at Brock-Norton encourage our clients, employees and any/all drivers to put down their phones and buckle up.   The CDC has said that there are three types of distracted driving. They are as follows: 1.      Visual distractions that cause you to take your eyes off the road. a.      Examples:                                                      i.      This can be using a GPS/Waze                                                    ii.      Looking at billboards/signage                                                   iii.      Rubbernecking at an accident                                                  iv.      Checking out the surrounding area or scenery or even looking at other cars around you
