Easy ways to avoid common driving distractions

It's one thing to say that you will never become distracted while you are behind the wheel, but another thing entirely to ensure that this never happens. It's easy to fall into the trap of taking your eyes off the road, especially if you are stuck in traffic or on a long trip.

Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to avoid common driving distractions:

  • Turn off your cellphone. This may not be something you do often, but it's one of the best ways to improve your safety when driving.
  • Use a hands-free device. If you absolutely need to use your phone when driving, a hands-free device can improve your safety.
  • Don't focus on what is happening in the back seat. Even if you have pets or children back there, you need to keep your eyes on the road. If you need to see what is going on, pull to safety.
  • Program your GPS before you hit the road. You don't want to find yourself fiddling with these buttons while also trying to pay attention to the road.

By following these tips, it's easy to avoid some of the most common driving distractions.

Although you may be paying close attention to everything going on around you, it's possible that some drivers aren't doing the same. This is a problem.

If you are involved in an accident with a distracted driver, move your car to safety and call 911.

Once you better understand your injuries, you can then learn more about the accident and your legal rights to receive compensation.
