Texting and Driving Isn't the Only No No When Driving

Distracted driving is something many of us do on a daily basis, sometimes without even knowing. Because distracted driving is one of the top causes of car accidents today, it's important to know the different things we do that take our attention off of the road. Texting and driving isn't the only offense and although you may not text and drive there are other things you should be sure not to do while you're behind the wheel. Including:

  1. Any sort of grooming should be done at home or when you get to your destination. Putting on makeup, combing your hair, or shaving are things you should avoid doing while driving.
  2. Many of us are always on the go and sometimes it's hard to find time to eat, but it's important to avoid doing it while driving. Food or drink spills are big distractions.
  3. Driving with too many passengers should also be avoided when possible. Tending to children and/or talking with friends takes your attention off of the road.
  4. Keep your music at a reasonable volume. Loud music inhibits your ability to hear emegergency sirens and horns.
