Free yourself from driving distractions

While driving feels almost automatic to the seasoned road user, the truth is that it is a very complex activity. When out on the open roads, humans have to make multiple decisions and judgments every few seconds. This means that there isn’t really room for distractions. In fact, distractions result in thousands of road related deaths and injuries every year.

Driving distractions occur in numerous forms and it’s vital that you try to eliminate them. Outlined below are a few important things to keep in mind.

Don’t drive when you’re stressed

Not all distractions are physical. Distractions of the mind are common and one of the most dangerous hazards to road users. If you’re feeling particularly stressed or have just had an argument with a friend or family member, this really isn’t the best time to hop in your vehicle. Take 5-10 minutes to cool down and clear your head before setting off. This extra time really could mean the difference between having an accident and getting to your destination safely

Keep electronic devices out of reach

Nowadays we do almost everything on our smartphones. This is fine when you’re in the office or at home, but a car is really no place for electronic gadgets. If you have an urgent email to send, do it before you set off. The same can be said for making calls. Even hands free devices can be unwelcome distractions that cause you to take your eyes off of the road.

Keeping distractions to a minimum when driving will really help to improve your safety. Unfortunately, there’s no way that you can ensure your fellow road users take the same steps. If you’ve been hurt in a collision that was caused by negligence, make sure you look into your legal options.
