Tips to Successfully Avoid Distracted Driving

Stay Safe Behind the Wheel

¬†It's all too easy to get distracted when you're on the road. Distracted driving has become just as serious as driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Although distracted driving is commonly associated with texting and cell phone calls, it can involve anything from eating, or getting caught up in a heavy conversation behind the wheel. To help to keep safe, take a look at these ways to avoid distracted driving. Plan before you driveIf you have a drive ahead of you, make your phone calls and send your text messages before you leave. If you need directions, plug in your GPS before setting off. If you're traveling with children, ensure that they are buckled up and have plenty of entertainment. Stay focused on the roadKeep your intentions with passengers to a minimum while driving so that you don't become distracted by what they're doing beside and behind you. If you need to make an emergency call, pull to the side of the road in a safe place before picking up your phone. Always drive defensivelyIn all road conditions and situations, it's important to drive defensively and to be prepared for anything that might come your way. Get into the habit of continually checking your rear-view and side-view mirrors every few seconds to keep your brain focused and alert on your surroundings. Auto insurance can be there for you when you need it the most. Work with an agency who has your best interests in mind. When you're looking for reliable and affordable ¬†car insurance ¬†coverage, talk to the team at Humble & Davenport Insurance.
