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!

    1. So glad to hear you are more aware of that habit and are proactive to end it!

  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!

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
