Distracted Driving Awareness

Steer Clear From Distraction

Driving away from distraction can not only save you from an accident but also save you money when it comes time to pay your insurance premium. In honor of Distracted Driving Awareness Month this April, take steps to return your attention to the road.

Cell phone use, however, is just one aspect of the distracted driving umbrella, which also includes eating, talking to passengers, using navigation systems, etc. According to the NHTSA, 3,450 lives were claimed due to distracted driving in 2016 alone.

Checking the latest notification is not worth endangering your life and the lives of those around you. Focus on the road, and reduce associated risks. For additional insight into the effects of distracted driving on your auto policy, contact us.

Did You Know:

Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that's like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.
