Distracted Driving Advisory Council

According to a recent study, Ohioans ages 16-20 had the highest number of distracted driving crashes over the past five years, followed by drivers between the ages of 21-25. Now, state officials are taking action.

The newly formed Distracted Driving Advisory Council will examine this problem in detail and make recommendations on reducing traffic crashes, injuries and fatalities. There will be a greater emphasis on distracted driving education in Ohio’s driver training courses.

ODOT says that nearly 80,000 distracted driving crashes occurred in Ohio between 2013-2018, and smartphone distractions are believed to be a contributing factor.
