– Distracted Driving
Are you guilty of texting or talking while driving?
Research has shown that distraction from cell phone use while driving – either
hand-held or hands-free – delays a driver's reactions as much as having a blood
alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. Remember that
Pennsylvania law prohibits sending, reading or writing text-based communication
on devices such as cell phones while driving. Visit justdrivepa.com for more

Driving while under the influence of prescription drugs
and alcohol is on the rise. Common effects of drugged driving include:
drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, and confusion. Be aware of the risks and
make safe driving decisions. Whether it is a 12-ounce beer, a 5-ounce glass of
wine, or a 1.5-ounce shot, they each constitute as one drink. A DUI can cost a
driver much more than just a fine, a loss of license, and possibly a job. You
can’t afford a DUI. For more information on impaired driving statistics and
