Distracted Drivers are Dangerous Drivers

These days and the past few years, we keep hearing about tragic fatalities that are caused by distracted drivers on our roads, senseless deaths and injuries that can be averted. Talking on your cell phone, texting people, checking Facebook and other social networks constantly is a no-no. You do not have to be in constant communication with the world 24/7 365. Everything has its limitations. It is dangerous. You are endangering others lives, passengers in your own vehicle, and yourself. Safety while driving should be the number one priority. Go from point A to B safely and when you are parked and vehicle is shut off, then you may resume to your communication to the world.

People do not understand the dangers associated with it. Dealing with the law is something people would not want to do. Driving is a serious thing. If you do not have your 100% concentration on the road, you can really do damage, damaging families forever, loss of life, and so much more. Unfortunately this society does not understand that. Also grooming yourself, reading a book while driving, playing with iPods, playing with gadgets, having a coffee in one hand and food in the other while steering with your knee is a no-no, just so that you can hold a device in your hands. People will do anything and everything and its so wrong to do so. You can easily lose track and lose control. It is a very serious matter. Put distractions down and focus on driving.

Hefty fines, tickets, points, to imprisonment, to all kinds of consequences can leave a permanent dent into your record. You do not want to risk losing your licence, suspension or any other things because of the act of distracted driving.  You are in control of what your actions are. Think before you act. When you are driving on the roads and highways, its not just about you anymore. You have to be responsible for you, the passengers in your car if you have, and you have to concentrate and be responsible for those driving around you and even pedestrians on the roads. A careless mistake can lead to a lot of problems.

Distracted driving also includes impairment, fatigue, and drunk driving. Being given a driver’s licence is giving you a privilege to drive.

Call a taxi, call a parent, call a friend, Do not drive. Call anybody. Just don’t get behind a wheel.

It is that simple. Insurance premiums go up ridiculously high because of other people’s mistakes and those who have a good driving record have to pay for others mistakes. It is not fair. Insurance premiums go up due to these unfortunate matters. We can all do our part to drive safer, to focus, to take driving seriously, to better ourselves. Driving is not a joke. You are playing with your life and others lives. A vehicle is a weapon. It can do terrible damages to others. So think about it. Think about the next time you have your phone, or gadgets or something with you. Think before you act, think before you do something. It can save you all the hassle in future.
