Distracted Driving And You

Distracted driving kills, its a fact. With people spending so much time in their vehicles today, one can be lulled into a comfort zone of pseudo predictability and boredom. This leads to the idea that we can do other things while driving, which is the first type of distraction, manual. This is any distraction that takes your hands off the wheel. Next is Emotional. Your mind is simply somewhere else: a fight with the spouse/boss, memories a song on the radio brings back and so on. Last is the visual, where your eyes aren’t on the road. All lead to accidents with serious injury/death.

Key Takeaways:

  • distracted driving is one of many reasons why we have so many accidents each year
  • The best thing you can do for your safety and the safety of those around you is to practice defensive driving
  • the first step to breaking a bad habit is to know and admit you have one in the first place

“The best thing you can do for your safety and the safety of those around you is to practice defensive driving, rather than distracted driving, to ensure the road is as safe as it can be for all.”
