Preventing Distracting Driving Accidents

Cell phone distractions have become one of the leading causes of distracted driving car accidents. The best way to ensure that your cell phone doesn’t cause you injury is to simply put it away. However, if this is not a possibility, there are several ways to make a cell phone easier and safer to use. Using a blue-tooth device or using voice-activation will prevent you from physically handling the phone while driving. Turning off the DVD player or waiting to eat meals until you are out of the car can also reduce the risk of harm.
