Avoiding Driver Distractions

Did you know that driver distraction is the #1 cause of car accidents? There are so many things that can distract you while driving and it only takes a second for disaster to occur.

Here’s a list of a few things that can become dangerous distractions while driving:

  • Cell phones and other mobile devices
  • Radios and stereos
  • Eating, drinking or smoking
  • Animals in the vehicle
  • Looking at your surroundings rather than the road
  • Thinking about something other than driving

Even talking to your passengers can become a concern when you start to pay more attention to the conversation than the road. We encourage you to focus on the road and pay attention while driving. It could save you or a loved one from unnecessary tragedy.
