April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month!

We all know many of the common distractions that take away attention from where it should be, the road. #Texting, Talking, Eating, Fiddling with the radio for that perfect song, and conversing with passengers are all some of the most common links to distracted driving.


The National #Highway Traffic Safety Administration collects data on distracted-driving crashes. In 2016 3,450 people were killed in #distracted #driving crashes, approximately 9.2% of all fatality related crashes in the US.


#Cellphones were reported at about 14% of that metric. But as we can see in the chart below, it looks like more and more people are aware of the issues around cell phones and driving.

Riverside Insurance is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly to everyone. Whilst we strive to adhere to the guidelines and standards for accessibility, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website and we are currently working to achieve this. Be aware that due to the dynamic nature of the website, minor issues may occasionally occur as it is updated regularly. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

If you have any comments and or suggestions relating to improving the accessibility of our site, please don't hesitate to contact our accessibility coordinator Julius Luciano by phone at 970-999-0101 or by email at JLuciano@riversideinsuranceco.com . Your feedback will help us make improvements.
