BHS: Distracted Driving Awareness & Defensive Driving

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month as designated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Even though in recent years people are driving less due to Covid and changing work schedules; traffic accident-related crash fatalities are on the rise. In addition to normal travel on public roadways, garden employees drive a wide variety of vehicles and equipment; from golf carts, to mowers to trams, trolleys and buses on site. The need for distracted driving awareness and defensive driving techniques is increasingly important whether on public roadways or within the garden.
