Monroe, NY (PRWEB) April 05, 2013
An analysis conducted by the National Safety Council reveals that traffic fatalities rose by 5% last year. Prior to this increase, there was a seven-year decline, potentially revealing a commitment to safety on the road. However, economic changes have produced a trend resulting in differing driving practices, according to the council. They believe the increase could be due to a variety of factors, one being a rise in distracted driving.
This alarming statistic has motivated the agents at On Time Insurance to advocate for safer driving in the region. Although cars have been built to be safer than ever, this does not mean drivers can and should be careless behind the wheel. From not wearing seatbelts to drunk driving to inexperienced teen driver and more, it is crucial for everyone to be aware of the unpredictable risks the road carries. In order to decrease such hazards, the agents have provided local motorists with tips to avoid distractions while driving:
- Silence or turn off all cell phones. Only use them in an emergency situation once pulling over.
- Never drive when tired or sleepy. Take a nap if the pressures of driving are too much to handle.
- Avoiding eating or drinking while driving. Keep both hands on the wheel at all times.
- Pre-program favorite radio stations or place music devices in an accessible spot.
- Adjust all mirrors and heat/AC before traveling.
- Teach children and other passengers about reducing distractions while in the vehicle.
- Do not have a stressful conversation while driving.
- Always wear a seatbelt.
