Distracted At The Wheel?
According to the (FLHSMV) Florida Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles, there were over 3,000 auto accidents in 2018 due to texting or
talking on the phone. Navigation systems and DVD players came in second with a
crash rate of 1,388. Out of these crashes, 214 of them resulted in fatalities.
Drivers commonly use cell phones and other mobile devices; they
can be eating or talking to passengers; they may be taking medication. It is up
to you to be focused on your task to make up for the distracted behavior of
others. Assume others are distracted or inattentive and do not see you. You can
do this only by not being distracted or inattentive yourself!
