Whether it is high-speed travel along I-95 or I-91, or lower speed travel through downtown, it is no secret that travel through New Haven can be dangerous. 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 paramount. Types of distracted driving include:
- Texting or talking on your cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Grooming or applying makeup
- Using GPS systems
- Reaching for toys
- Getting something out of a purse or other bag
