APRIL - DISTRACTED DRIVING AWARENESS MONTH

Provided by: The Insurance House

Did You Know?

A recent study from the University of Minnesota found that talking on a cell phone while driving impairs one's ability even more than driving while intoxicated.  Talking on a cell phone and other driver distractions pose a major hazard to everyone on the road.  

PREVENTING DISTRACTED DRIVING

  • Do not talk on your cell phone or use the text messaging feature.
  • If you absolutely must conduct a conversation use a hands-free device and speed dial.
  • Never touch up your makeup or hair in the rearview mirror.
  • Limit your conversations with passengers and ask them to keep their voices down so you can concentrate.
  • Do not smoke while you are driving, as you will probably pay more attention to not burning yourself or putting out the cigarette than driving safely.
  • Only adjust the radio or CD player when you are completely stopped.
  • Never allow animals to sit on your lap while driving.
  • Do not eat or drink while driving.
  • Avoid reading maps or directions.  Instead, pull into a parking lot to get your bearings and determine where you need to go next to reach your final destination.
  • Do not take notes or search for phone numbers.
  • Never use a cell phone (even with a hands-free device) in bad weather, work zones or heavy traffic.

Safety First

Allowing yourself to become distracted while driving can lead to dangerous, and even fatal, consequences.  Be a responsible motorist and make paying attention to the road your number one priority when you're behind the wheel.
