April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month. While much attention has been placed on people who text while driving, other things can cause distractions to drivers as well including kids riding in the car, the radio or CD player, or voice calls. The situation leads to hundreds of crashes in Wyoming each year according to the state Center for Disease Control. Joel Feldman of the Casey Feldman Memorial Foundation is quick to point out that bad habits while driving are often connected to bad examples. Feldman says studies show that teens who grow up in a household where the parents drive distracted are two to four times more likely to drive distracted. Says Feldman, “I drove distracted all the time before my daughter was killed – I was a poor role model, I would drive distracted with my kids in the car.” Feldman’s 21-year-old daughter was walking across a street in 2009 when she was struck and killed by a distracted driver. Wyoming has laws against texting and driving, but while Feldman says the law can be helpful, it won’t stop all distracted driving.
