A Life Saving Checklist

[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Thousands have died in vehicle crashes because drivers are distracted by cell phones, conversations, emails, text messages and social media. Do not become a statistic. Check out these tips to help you keep your eyes on the road, your hands on the wheel and your mind on the drive.

  • Turn off your phone. Put it in the glove compartment, your purse or even in the trunk. There is no safe way to make a call while driving – not even hands-free.
  • Read and send text messages and emails before you start driving.
  • If you’re headed out on a long drive, schedule stops to park safely and respond to messages.
  • Using voice features in your car’s infotainment system is also distracting. Take care of all communications before you start driving.
  • Know where you’re going before you put the car in drive. Enter your destination into your phone or GPS before you start driving, so you don’t need to touch it while the car is in motion.
  • Social media can wait. No update, tweet or video is worth a life.
  • Park in a safe area if you must take a call, return a text or check email.
  • Do not call or text friends or family if you know they are driving.
