How to avoid distracted driving

The simplest solution: when you’re driving, just drive. Here are a few ways to cut down on distractions:

  • Turn off or silence your phone, or have a passenger answer calls and texts. There are also apps and safety settings available which will send an automatic text response while you’re driving in case someone tries to get a hold of you.
  • If you need to use your phone for an emergency, pull over somewhere safe.
  • Make sure you know where your car’s features are so you can adjust them without looking at them (heat, AC, windshield wipers, radio controls, etc.).
  • Set your GPS before you start driving.
  • If you are upset or angry before driving, take the time to refocus and calm yourself.
  • Avoid eating while driving. Park somewhere safe if you need to eat. If you have to eat on the road, choose something that won’t be messy or difficult to manage.
  • If children in the back seat need something, safely pull over rather than reaching back while driving.
