Distracted Driving Fact Check

It wasn't that long ago that drinking and driving was the hot topic of the day when it came to discussing road safety concerns. Thanks to many dedicated organizations, individuals, legislation and enforcement, we are finally seeing a decrease in drinking and driving crashes.

While this is definitely encouraging, what's not encouraging is that distracted driving is surpassing drinking and driving as the cause of road crash fatalities. It took over 25 years for drinking and driving to become the social taboo that it is today…we simply cannot afford to wait that long for distracted driving to be viewed the same way.

Every single life lost due to distracted driving is 100% preventable. Distractions range from electronic devices to personal grooming, reading, writing, unrestrained pets and more. Any activity, when driving, that takes your mind, eyes, ears or hands off the task of driving increases your risk of crashing.

Each person will have their own incentive to stop unsafe driving behaviour; for some it's the fine and demerits, for others it's the understanding that it's not worth the risk to themselves or others. For those who aren't there yet…let's say the distracted driver had to be the one to inform the family of the person they just injured or killed.

Personal accountability for our actions should be more than enough incentive to drop the distractions when driving and focus on road safety.
