Stop Distracted Driving!

This post brought to you by Insurance Hunter. All opinions are 100% mine.
Are you guilty of texting or uing your G.P.S. while driving? If you said yes, this post is for you.
You may think checking your phone or using your G.P.S. while driving is not a big deal. You're a multi-tasker, you say. But distracted driving is an issue that happens too often and should not be taken lightly. Studies show that 8 out of 10 accidents are due to distracted driving. By those stats alone, this shows this really has to stop. To know that this can all be prevented if drivers remain focused on the road and not their phones, should be enough to end it. You wouldn't want you or a loved one to become a statistic, would you?
It's time to put away those phones while driving. Keep your eyes on the road when you are behind the wheel, it could save a life, maybe even your own.
Stop Distracted Drivers
This is an instance when I am glad I no longer drive. I am sure I would be guilty of distracted driving. That is a scary thought. Being a pedestrian doesn't make me feel safe though. Not knowing this information. It enlightens me to the dangers and opens my eyes when walking in this large city. Now if I see someone driving distracted, it will be easier to contact the authorities, or at least keep my distance for safety.
I will definitely be talking proactively to everyone I know about their driving habits. Opening their eyes is the first step, but it's worth a try to make the streets we travel safer to be on.

  1. I am terrible about oh I can check this text or email as I am slowing down to a red light. Lately I've been forcing myself to keep my phone in my purse, zipped and keeping it on the passenger floorboard, so I am not able to just grab it. Makes it less likely for me to deal with my phone (too much work to grab it). I keep telling myself everyone whose been in an accident or killed because of texting thought they were being safe. Good reminder!

  2. It's one of my pet peeves when people are on their phones while driving. So dangerous and I never touch my phone or have it in my hands when I'm on the road. In my opinion, it can always wait until I've parked :)

    1. So true!! It's not like people didn't do exactly that and wait before cell phones were invented.

    2. You are completely right Brandi! Every call or text can wait until you are safely parked. If you are expecting an important call, make it a point to be in a safe place to take the call.

  3. You are so right. Our theaters are promoting safe driving and the writing on their hands is perfect. You can use it while walking or driving when someone is driving while being distractions. (If you can get their attention.) "It can wait!" on the inside of their hand. Even worse, something which happened last Saturday are folks supposedly driving, not even using any device but still they meander over lanes, or slowly pull out in front of you like they are the only ones out there! Drive people! I actually screamed, over and over, or get off the road!
