Turn Off All Mobile Devices
Mobile devices have become a huge distraction in recent years, yet the temptation to text or talk on the phone is too great for some despite the risks involved, not to mention the fact that it’s illegal. Using a hands-free device doesn’t reduce the risk totally and according to a National Safety Council report 26% of all car crashes involve cell-phone use including hands-free devices. Reduce the temptation by turning off the device so that you do not hear the constant ringing and beeps. Keep it in the back seat so that the allure to send a text or check emails at a red light is reduced.
