Distractions While Driving

Did you know that distracted driving kills approximately 9 individuals each and every day?

  • Other people’s/ children
  • Pets / animals
  • Taking hands off the wheel
  • Eyes wandering
  • Usage of electronics

In the world we live in now, it’s easy to get distracted especially while driving. From texting and
driving and eyes wandering across the street and you driving into a pole. There are 3 main
types of distractions while driving that can all lead to a car accident or injuries to you and other
passengers/ pedestrians . First one is visual- taking your eyes off the road to text back or use
your GPS. Second is manual- taking your hands off the wheel to reach for something. Lastly is
cognitive- your mind spacing out somewhere else to the point you forget your driving. Statistics
show younger drivers tend to email/text while driving as they are leading in distracted driving

Ways to prevent distracted driving

  • Avoid phone usage completely- have an idea or know your route
  • Speak up if your another passenger in the car.
  • Avoid eating or doing tasks while driving
  • Have everything arraigned before putting the car in drive gear

Arrive alive, don’t text and drive
