Here’s a great article for young drivers over at Edmunds.com. Not only does it talk about some of the unexpected distractions, but they also give you tips on how to deal with them.
Even experienced drivers might want to take a look – maybe even more so than all those new drivers out there. Sure, as you drive more, you learn how to deal with the buzzing cell phone, the chatting passengers and all the things on the road you need to pay attention to. But, experienced drivers also tend to fall into bad habits after time. Things like eating your morning bagel with cream cheese on the expressway. Or texting a quick message to your spouse in traffic.
Here’s their top-ten denizens of driving distraction:
Chatting with passengers
Talking on your phone
Fiddling with the radio station
Being “too” into your music
Fussing with driving controls
Trying to figure out directions
Are you guilty of one or more of these? Take a look at what they have to say about being a little bit safer.
