Distracted Driving Is Nothing To LOL About

The National Safety Council has designated April as Distracted Driving Month, which makes it the perfect time to talk about the dangers of losing focus at the wheel. Do you ever drive distracted? Here’s how to tell:
  • You like to eat, groom and/or text on your phone while driving.
  • You think nothing of taking calls while you’re driving.
  • You love to multitask while you’re heading somewhere in the car.
  • You often fuss with your GPS system or take phone calls while driving.
  • You’ve lost focus on the road while trying to control a pet, reading the newspaper, reaching for something in the car or leaning over to see a roadside accident.
Any of these behaviors sound familiar? If so, it’s time to rethink your driving habits — because, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 3,000 people died in car crashes in 2012 because of behaviors just like these.

Staying focused as a driver is not only an important way to maintain a safe driving record and lower insurance rates, but also it’s vital in order to avoid hurting yourself or others on the road — so pay attention to the primary task of driving while you’re traveling! Program your navigation system before departing, save phone calls for when you’ve arrived at your destination and take driving seriously. It may make the difference between life and death this spring.
