Drivers, especially those transporting children, need to pay attention and keep their focus on the road while driving. State roadways can be especially dangerous; cars are traveling at fast speeds and many drivers are engaged in forms of distracted-driving. By keeping your focus on the road, not diverting your attention away from the road and paying attention to the street signals, road signs and other surroundings while driving, you will make state roadways a safer place for all, especially children.
