IDAHO FALLS, Idaho -

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, and state troopers are out and about looking for those who look distracted.

"Just watch for that person that's not maintaining lane, whether it's crossing into the other lane or driving onto the shoulder,” said trooper Pete Sibus.

Sibus said cell phones are among the most common distractions.

"If you're getting a call and you don't want to answer it, have the passenger answer the phone for you. Have them adjust the radio."

The National Safety Council estimates that one in four crashes involve a cell phone.
