We’ve mentioned this before in another blog article but distracted driving from texting, talking or reading social media posts on your phone, or eating is a major cause of collisions. This is also one of the most preventable causes.
Simply put your phone on mute or turn it off while you’re driving. Also, eating is not necessary while driving. Pull over until you’re finished.
Although you can’t control the first three causes of vehicle collisions listed above— other than being focused on the road and your surroundings— you do have control over whether you choose to run a red light or use your phone in various ways while driving. Remember, that many vehicle collisions occur with other vehicles so it’s not just your own life that’s on the line.
