Traffic Safety Summit to address distracted driving

by

EAST LANSING (WKZO) -- Distracted driving will be one of the main topics of discussion at a Traffic Safety Summit being held in East Lansing this week. Anne Readett, with the Michigan office of Highway Safety Planning, says that the problem has gotten much worse in recent years, as everyone's always playing with their phones, which are essentially little computers now.She says that transportation officials at the summit will discuss ways to cut down on that sort of distracted driving. One message they're pushing is the "Put Your Phone in Park" campaign, which is aimed at reminding teenagers that they're simply not allowed to do anything on their phones when behind the wheel.
