Don’t become a statistic. Take ownership for your actions behind the wheel. Be at your best!
Whether driving to a meeting or after business hours, it requires your full attention. Sending or receiving a text takes a driver’s eyes from the road for an average of 4.6 seconds. This is the equivalent, at 55 mph, of driving the length of an entire football field, blindfolded!
Like any complex task, safe driving requires you to be at the top of your game. Focused attention, quick reaction time and smart decision making are needed every time you take the wheel.
Maintain a safe driving distance. On clear, dry roads, maintain 3-4 second spacing from the vehicle in front of you. Triple this when road conditions are poor.
Frequently scan your mirrors.
Drive safe! Obey laws and speed limits, use turn signals and don’t tailgate.
