Avoiding Distracted Driving Car Accidents

Avoiding Distracted Driving Car AccidentsIt is widely known that user error tends to be at the root of most, if not all, car accidents today. Many motorists believe driving to be almost second nature, making them comfortable to do other things while behind the wheel.

This lack of attention to the task of driving safely, referred to as distracted driving, often results in car accidents, which can leave people injured or even worse — dead.

Again, anything that diverts your attention away from driving is considered distracted driving. And since distracted driving often leads to accidents, it is important to understand ways to avoid such incidents.

Tips to Avoid Distraction

One of the biggest causes of distracted driving tends to be cell phone use. Whether sending a text or trying to make or receive a phone call, turning your attention to your phone, even for one text message, can prove costly.

In order to avoid this distraction, you should do your best to avoid using your phone except in an emergency situation. Even then, you should pull over to the side of the road before using your cellular device.

Another easy tip to avoid distraction is to avoid eating or drinking while driving. Spilling food or a drink on yourself while driving can immediately take your attention away from others on the road. Make time to eat before or after you get behind the wheel.

It seems silly to view passengers as a distraction, especially since many vehicles today are passenger vehicles. But conversations with friends or engaging in activity with your passengers can leave you attention divided, which is not safe. Let your passengers know you want to concentrate on the road and request they avoid any actions that can compromise your safety.

One last tip for avoiding distraction is to make sure you are well-rested before driving, especially for long trips. Drowsiness can increase the risk of a crash by almost four times. If you feel tired or fatigued, get off the road and take the time to rest.
