Keep your eyes on the road!
Texting and driving is not the only form of distracted driving that affects our roadways. In fact, if we’re all honest, most of us have probably engaged in one or more of the following activities (list compiled by www.distraction.gov) while driving:
· Using a cell phone
· Eating and drinking
· Talking to passengers
· Putting on makeup or combing hair
· Reading, including maps
· Using a PDA or navigation system
· Watching a video
· Changing the radio station, CD, or Mp3 player
So, be smart! Wait until your car is parked to do anything that causes you to take your eyes off the road, even for a second. Really, that’s all it takes.
