TENNESSEE, USA — April marks Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
In 2019, Tennessee saw more than 23,700 crashes involving distracted drivers.
That's roughly 65 crashes a day.
A new study lists Tennessee as having the highest rate of distracted driving deaths in the country.
Now, the Tennessee Highway Safety Office is reminding people about the state hands-free law.
It makes it illegal for drivers to use hand-held phones while the car's in motion.
The law took effect in July 2019.
