How to Avoid Distractions Behind the Wheel

The obvious answer to this question is to not text and drive, but it that is easier said than done. Many people have their own definition of “distracted driving.” Young drivers are even more likely to become distracted.

Here are just a few of the things that can distract drivers on the road:
• Talking on the phone
• Eating or drinking
• Talking to passengers
• Grooming
• Reading
• Adjusting the stereo

How can you protect those ones closest to you? Here are some tips to keep your loved ones safe behind the wheel. Do not use the phone. This includes texting and talking on the phone. This is one of the biggest distractions that people face today. Wait until you arrive at your location to take those phone calls. Make sure to eat before you leave. Make sure you stay completely focused on the road. Also, make sure to know where you are going. Plan out and know where you will be traveling too and keep your hands off the GPS while driving. Lastly, talk to your family members about safe driving. Talk to them and inform them of the potential risks that can distract drivers on the road.

Distracted driving affects drivers of any age, even texting while driving. Make sure that your family is protected and knows the distractions while driving. Also call and make sure that your auto policy is up to date. If you have a question about your auto insurance give the agents at Spivey Insurance Group a call at 704-821-4460.
