  • Each year, distracted driving contributes to more than 26,000 injuries and 180 fatalities on Maryland roads. It’s also a leading factor in work zone crashes. MDOT MVA’s Highway Safety Office launched the “Be the Focused Driver” campaign in 2020 and works with law enforcement officials to encourage motorists to put down distractions and give driving their full attention when behind the wheel. To support work zone safety, the Highway Safety Office created new graphics reminding motorists to “Be the Focused Driver” when approaching and driving in work zones.
