There are easy ways to avoid common driving distractions

When you get behind the wheel of your car, you may have one goal and one goal only: making it to your destination in a timely manner. While there is nothing wrong with this, you need to realize that there are many steps you can take to remain safe.

For example, you never want to become distracted. A minor distraction, even one that takes your eyes off the road for a second, can lead to a serious accident.

Here are some tips for avoiding common driving distractions:

  • Turn off your cellphone and keep it out of reach. If you must use your phone, it's imperative to rely on a hands-free device. And of course, you should never text and drive.
  • Pull over to the side of the road if you need to search for something. You never want to search for something while driving, as this almost always means you'll take your eyes off the road.
  • Don't focus on your GPS system or radio. Instead, set both of these things before you put your car in drive, so that you don't have to mess with them while your vehicle is in motion.

These three basic steps can help you avoid a distraction that could cause an accident.

Unfortunately, other drivers may not be taking as much care as you. Instead, they very rarely put all their focus into the task at hand.

If you're part of an accident with a distracted driver, make sure you call 911, obtain medical treatment and then learn more about your legal rights.
