Everybody’s prone to getting distracted while driving

| Dec 27, 2018 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

There’s no way to “fool-proof” yourself against distracted driving. Indeed, anything can catch your attention and divert your eyes away from the road. However, there are some types of distractions that are avoidable and drivers need to do everything they can to prevent them: Like cell phones, putting on make-up, getting into heated conversations and playing with the radio while navigating traffic to name a few.

Aside from avoiding the obvious, here are a few more things you can do to prevent getting distracted on the road:

  • Remain calm at all times as stress, anxiety and anger can distract your attention in dangerous ways.
  • Pull over, rest and get focused after getting distracted by stress, fear or intense emotions.
  • Take a break if you can’t stay focused on the road.
  • Don’t get into arguments with your passengers.
  • Ask your passengers for help to send text messages, make calls, adjust the temperature and change the music selection.
  • Get to know the interior of your car so you can safely adjust dials without taking your eyes off the road.
  • Adjust your mirrors, seat, steering wheel and other things in your car so you’re comfortable before you start driving.

It can’t be said enough: The opportunities for distractions are endless while driving. Keep your wits about you and use your common sense at all times. And if you still get hurt in a crash due to another driver’s negligence or unlawful behavior, don’t delay when it comes to investigating whether or not you have the right to pursue justice and restitution in court.
