How are you working to combat distracted driving?
As we enter the rescheduled Distracted Driving Awareness Month, it is easy to see that the world is unpredictable. With that being said though, there are things you can control in your life even during uncertain times, including the level of attention you choose to give when you’re driving.
Needless to say though, cell phones and texting aren’t the only things that pull a driver’s eyes away from the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, any activity that diverts your attention from the primary task of driving is considered distracted driving. Consider all of the ways that your eyes are pulled from the road.
These incidents are avoidable, but yet as commonplace as rubbernecking or turning the radio or song on your phone to something you favor more. While we know it’s impossible to remain focused at all times as well, keeping yourself free of distractions is easier than the expenses incurred when a potentially detrimental crash occurs.
