Speeding has been identified as being the main culprit for accidents on highway 17, no surprise there.

Second? Distracted driving. Cell phones, texting, EATING while driving, putting on make-up, and other things instead of keeping your eyes and attention to the road.

The Santa Clara County Fire Department has released a series of videos and information on staying safe on highway 17. You can view their information at: www.sccfd.org/community-education/emergency-preparedness/safe-on-17
