Preventing Distracted Driving

April has been designated Distracted Driving Awareness Month by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration so it’s a good time to review some basics.

Distracted driving occurs whenever you engage in an activity behind the wheel that takes your attention off the road. Consider these tips for preventing distracted driving:

• Never talk on your cellphone or text while driving.

• Avoid reading maps or directions as you drive.

• Limit your conversations with passengers.

• Don’t smoke, eat or drink while you are driving.

• Never touch up your makeup or hair in the rearview mirror.

• Only adjust the radio when you are completely stopped.

• Don’t allow animals to sit on your lap while driving.
