Throughout the month of April, law enforcement agencies in North Dakota will be participating in the national U Drive.

"Distracted driving poses significant risk to every business that has employees who drive both company-owned and personal vehicles for company business", said Steve Hernandez, Senior Vice President, Risk Control, CNA Commercial.

"More than 20,000 in 2015 that's a lot of crashes that are really all preventable. CDOT plans to address this disconnect and our collective addiction to our phones this summer through our Drop the Distraction campaign", said Lingk.

AAA research has found that the cognitive distraction of a conversation and using technology is more risky than first thought, and may distract drivers up to 27 seconds after they hang up the phone.

Almost 150 law enforcement agencies around the state are adding patrols looking specifically for those distracted by cell phones while operating their vehicles.

More than 450 people died in traffic crashes across the state as a result of distracted driving in 2016. Surveyors say that is more than a 2 percent increase from the year before. Please stop.
