What would you say is the biggest cause of distracted-driving car crash deaths? You'd probably say cellphones. But you'd be wrong (they're in second place).
Almost two thirds of death-crashes are due to letting our minds wander! You're thinking about a thousand-and-one things when, suddenly… caboom!!!
If this is you, or a driver in your family, mind-wandering risks can be cut by:
  • Never driving when tired or angry, such as after an argument
  • Avoiding talk-radio, podcasts and audiobooks
  • Keeping eyes on the road instead of admiring the scenery
  • Avoiding talking to others, including use of hands-free phones
Never forget that driving is risky. You might find this distracted driving guide useful:
Stay safe!
