Let’s take this time to think about the choices we make when we’re on the road. Here are some safety tips for a safe ride.
Absolutely need to send a text? Pull over and park your car in a safe location first. No text is more important than your life, and just a split second can change your life.
You can also designate your passenger as a designated texter. They can respond to messages, texts, and emails.
Distracted Driving isn’t just texting. Pull over and park your car for any time of messages including social media and emails.
