Check out these tips to avoid becoming distracted
while driving. It could help you avert an expensive
and life-altering accident:
Don't dial and drive.
Unfortunately, cell phone usage by drivers has
been increasing, particularly among the youngest
(and least-experienced) drivers, ages 16 to 24.
Yes, it might be hard to give up the habit of
using your cell phone while on the road, but pulling
over to place a call or letting your voicemail
pick up calls could help save your life.
Don't drive while drowsy.
Don't make the mistake of thinking that you can
prevent drowsiness by listening to the radio or
opening a window. Get a good night's sleep before
you get behind the wheel. If you're planning a
long trip, schedule regular stops and/or drive
with a companion. Remember that alcohol and medications,
such as allergy or cold remedies, can make you
Have what you need within reach before you hit
the gas pedal. This way, you won't have to reach
for items in the back seat or pick up stuff off
the floor. Set your radio/CD and avoid adjusting
buttons/ knobs while driving.
Let's make sure your Auto coverage is ready in
case you're involved in an accident with a distracted
driver. And imagine how much worse it could be
if the other driver is uninsured or underinsured
and you're not properly covered. That's why it's
important to have full coverage for whatever you
may encounter on the road.
