Safe driving is important for everyone. Reducing risk while on the road is key to help reduce the likelihood of a collision. Remember to say no to distractions while behind the wheel!
Whether it’s making a phone call or texting, it can wait. We all know that use of a hand-held device while driving is illegal, but more importantly, it puts you and your passengers at risk. Recent research shows that use of a mobile device while driving increases your reaction time, makes it more difficult to stay in your lane, and makes it more likely for you to make mistakes on the road. This is true whether you are using a hand-held device or a hands-free device. Remember, that call or text can wait until you are safely parked!
