After being cooped up in the house for so long, we’re all anxious to hit the open road and enjoy a taste of spring freedom! However, to avoid a Connecticut auto accident, make sure to drive safely out there. Safe driving means focused driving, so make sure you skip these distracted driving habits. 

  1. Talking on the phone. We see so many cases that are caused by people talking on the phone while behind the wheel. Sure drive time can seem like a good opportunity to catch up with someone you’ve been missing, but a good conversation means connecting with the other person – listening and sharing emotions – which is terribly distracting when you should be paying attention to the road ahead. 
  2. Eating and drinking. Eating is another common distracted-driving habit. It only takes tipping up your cup to get that last sip of coffee to block your vision for a split second. If that’s the moment someone steps into the street, you’ve caused an accident. 
  3. Tuning the radio. And, of course, there are those pesky radio commercials. Don’t change the station while you’re moving: This takes your eyes off of the road, leaving you unprepared for what might happen next. 

Remember, it’s critical that when you’re in control of a car or truck that your focus remains on driving and being aware of your surroundings at all times. At LoRicco Law Firm, we hope you enjoy these carefree late spring days, but we also want you to avoid distractions while doing so.
