Texting While Driving

We all know that distracted driving is dangerous and are aware of all the consequences that we could face if caught, yet studies have shown that nearly half of us have texted and driven and the trend is increasing. At this rate texting and driving will be linked to more fatalities than drinking and driving.

 Tips to resist the temptation of your phone while driving
  • Turn your phone to silent mode and put your phone in your glove compartment or in the back seat.
  • If you use it to play music use the Bluetooth function or a longer auxiliary cord and place your phone out of reach
  • Google how to auto-reply from your smart phone and program a message like "Can't reply, driving"
  • Ask a passenger to take a call or respond to a text for you
  • If you must respond, or have to make a call or send a text, carefully pull over to a safe area
