First Time Driver’s Clinic
The Adams Mark Hotel and CoCo Key Water Resort will be hosting the next Jackson County Sheriffs Office First Time Drivers Safety program on September 14th! CoCo Key is partnering again with the Jackson Country Sheriff’s Office in their effort to bring awareness to the dangers of “driving while distracted”. The event will be held at the Adams Mark Hotel!
The texting and driving statics are staggering;
- The National Safety Council reports that cell phone use while driving leads to 1.6 million crashes each year.
- Texting while driving is 6x more likely to cause an accident than driving drunk.
- Answering a text takes away your attention for about five seconds. Traveling at 55 mph, that’s enough time to travel the length of a football field.
Here’s some photos from the previous event.
