How to Reduce Driving Distractions

Much has been made in recent years about distracted driving due to mobile phones, but in reality, distractions are all around us and always have been. In addition to putting down your phone, there are other things you can do to minimize distractions when you are behind the wheel.

Make sure everything and everyone is secure before you turn on it ignition. This means that you should stow away or tie down loose cargo that could roll around during your drive. Children should be secured in car seats, while pets should be confined to a small area so they won't interfere with driving.

Make all adjustments to seating, GPS, sound levels, mirrors and other variables before you start driving. Make sure you complete personal grooming before you enter your vehicle, even if it makes you late. Consume food and beverages wisely, if you must, while in your vehicle.
