It is no secret that travel through New Haven can be treacherous – whether it’s downtown, along the Wilbur, or on I95 or I91. Distracted driving can add to that danger, and can cause undue New Haven auto accidents that can hurt yourself or others.
Staying focused on the road will help keep you and other drivers safe. This is especially imperative for those with teen drivers, who are inexperienced with driving and have a higher incidence of being distracted. We all need a reminder every so often to put down the phone or not eat while driving, because the safety of all those on the road is most important. Types of distracted driving include:
- Eating or drinking
- Getting something out of a purse or other bag
- Using GPS systems
- Texting or talking on your cell phone
- Reaching for toys
- Grooming or applying makeup
