When someone gets behind the wheel of a car, let’s face it- the potential distractions are endless!
Ringing cell phones and text message alerts are hard to ignore. The temptations for a driver to move their eyes off the road- even for a second- are everywhere.
Today’s car infotainment systems allow drivers to do everything from make calls to get directions, and even find their favorite music.
All those features may provide for a more convenient, enjoyable ride… But they also make for a more dangerous one.
Even something as simple as eating or talking to a passenger can take critical attention away from driving, the road, and other vehicles.
It all falls under the category of “distracted driving.”
So remember, use hands free technology- and don’t text and drive! It’s not just dangerous, it’s illegal in Florida!
Program your in-car system, or download an app that will divert text messages when you’re driving.
Admittedly, no matter how careful you are, the other guy or gal may not be paying attention to the road.
