We’ve been talking about the dangers of texting while driving and how senseless of an act that it is. If you want to be safe behind the wheel of your vehicle then you’ll want to make sure that you don’t text while you’re driving. There are a few things that you can do to avoid responding to your phone. The very first thing that you can try doing is to put your phone in the back of the vehicle or somewhere else that isn’t within reach. This means that you would have to completely stop your vehicle in order to respond to a text or phone call. After all, your friends can wait a few extra minutes before you respond to a text or phone call.
The one act that is completely awful and almost unforgivable is driving while you are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. This is never worth it and can end with you losing your license, being arrested, hurting or even killing someone. Even if this is something that you have done before or know of others that have made it home safely after doing this you should avoid this at all costs. Before you go out for the evening you should schedule a DD, cab driver, or plan on staying where you are at.
There are many other distractions that happen whenever you’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. A few of these distractions can include: eating, reading, putting on makeup, grooming, changing the music, talking with friends, and much more. Anything that can take you attention off of the road and the act of driving is something that could potentially cause an accident. Try your hardest to always stay focused on what you’re doing which is driving.
