Nobody’s perfect, and even the most focused people are prone to distractions now and then. Unfortunately, these distractions can quickly turn into car accidents, which can result in property damage, personal injury, and even death. Stay off of your phone, eat once you get to work, and do your makeup before you get in the car to keep yourself and others safe. Read on for a closer look at some of the most common driver distractions.
We’re more reliant on technology than ever, and we get anxiety when we’re away from our phones for too long. No matter what kind of text message you need to send or phone call you’re waiting on, don’t use your cell phone while you drive. The popularity of cell phones is responsible for countless deaths because people get distracted with them when they should be paying attention to the road. If you need to use your phone while you’re out and about, use a hands-free method of doing so.
Food and Beverages
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it’s not so important that you should put yourself and others in harm’s way for it. Whether it’s your morning coffee or the bagel you stopped to pick up at the deli, save it for when you get to the office. If you’re in dire need of caffeine or a bite of food, wait until you’re stopped at a red light to indulge.
Makeup and Hair
Sometimes you must multitask when you’re in a rush, but distracted driving can be deadly. Do your makeup and your hair before you get in the car, or wait until you get where you’re going and use a mirror when you get there.
