「全国ながら運転防止月間」
Our current vignette talks about the dangers of distracted driving. April marked National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in the United States, a program that was started by the National Safety Council 10 years ago, but this year’s campaign was postponed due to the novel coronavirus. Authorities wanted to ensure that people are focused on preventing and stemming the spread of the pandemic. Despite the delay, though, distracted driving remains a serious concern. Not only in the United States but also in Japan. The National Safety Council was asking drivers to take the pledge not to engage in distracted driving and I did.

So what exactly did you pledge?
その文言は次のようなもの
The wording was as follows: “I pledge to Just Drive for my own safety and for others with whom I share the roads. I choose to not drive distracted in any way.” Then it covered the actions I will not engage in, such as have a phone conversation, check or send emails, take selfies or film videos. In return for the pledge and as a reminder to myself that I promised to drive distraction-free, I got a nice printable certificate. I think it’s a wonderful idea.
ジャスト・ドライブに専念することを誓います
selfie 自撮り、セルフィー
distraction-free 気を散らさないで
I agree. I’ve actually been in an accident that was directly caused by distracted driving, so I’m all for any efforts to prevent that kind of thing.
What happened? Was anyone hurt?
