April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month to increase awareness that distracted drivers are not only a danger to themselves, but everyone else on the road. Video conferencing while you are operating a vehicle is not only unsafe, it’s against the law. In accordance with the General Statutes of North Carolina, using video technology, (i.e., Zoom, Google Meet, etc.) while operating a vehicle is unlawful. In North Carolina, almost 20% of all driving accidents can be attributed to distracted driving.
Help to keep our campus safe by removing distractions while driving. If you need to participate in a video conference, be sure that you are parked in a safe location prior to joining the conference. Encourage co-workers to be responsible and eliminate all distractions while driving so everyone will safely arrive to their destinations.
