Careful on The Road! Don’t Get Distracted While Driving

While several Public Service Announcements have warned against the dangers of distracted driving, much of the conversation centered initially on young and inexperienced drivers. This focus is justified, as the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that the majority of distracted drivers are under the age of 20. However, distracted driving affects all age groups and affects each gender equally. According to distraction.gov, the official government site for distracted driving in the United States, “An estimated 421,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver [in 2012].”

As auto insurance brokers, we want to be certain that the roads are safe for everyone, so we want to cover the specifics of what distracted driving is and how to avoid it. In short, distracted driving is defined as “any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving.” This includes doing any or all of the following while driving:

  • Any use of a cell phone or smartphone
  • Using navigation systems or reading a map
  • Grooming the hair or applying makeup
  • Eating, drinking
  • Operating the radio, CD or MP3 player

Listen, distracted driving affects you, other passengers in your car, passengers in other vehicles and even by-standers. It’s dangerous, the consequences can be deadly and bottom line–it just isn’t worth it.
