The Dangers of Distracted Driving

With the amount of work drivers are faced with in a day, and the amount of miles that need to be put on, often times drivers try to multitask while driving, which includes emails, texting, phone calls and even eating.  Trying to perform any task other than driving, even for a second, can take your eyes off the road and lead to disastrous consequences.  The link below leads to an article and a video that shows just how quickly drivers can become distracted when trying to do anything other than driving.  In the video, the drivers range from a new driver with little experience, a long time driver with years of a safe driving record and even a driving instructor, all using a simulator while performing tasks such as answering phone calls, texts and even reaching for snacks.  Please watch the video in the link as a reminder of how dangerous distracted driving can be, and as always, Drive Safe!
