Tips on How to Avoid the Distractions while Driving

Do you want to minimize your distractions while you or teens are driving?  Here are some tips to consider:

  1. Storing loose gear and possessions that could roll around in the car, so you don’t feel tempted to reach for them on the floor or far seat.
  2. Make adjustments before you start your trip. Address vehicle systems like your GPS, seats, mirrors, sounds systems before you hit the road.
  3. Finish dressing and personal grooming at home, before you get on the road.
  4. Snack smart. If possible, eat meals and snacks before or after your trip.
  5. Secure children and pets before getting underway. If they need your full attention, pull of the road safely to care for them.
  6. Put aside your electronic distractions. Don’t use cell phones while driving – handheld or hands free – except in absolute emergencies. See how your cell phone usage can severely distract your attention to the road.
  7. If you have passengers, enlist their help so you can focus safely on driving.
  8. If another activity demands your attention, instead of trying to attempt it while driving, pull off the road and stop your vehicle in a safe place. To avoid temptation, power down or stow your devices before heading out.

Overall, as a general rule, if you cannot devote your full attention to driving because of some activity, it’s a distraction.  Take care of it before or after your trip, not while behind the wheel.  Go to AAA for more information.
