An Omaha Automobile Accident Attorney Explains How to Avoid Distracted Driving, Omaha, Nebraska

If you're hurt in a crash caused by a distracted driver, an experienced automobile accident attorney can help you collect compensation for everything you've lost. However, many drivers don't even realize their behavior is dangerous until it's too late. Below are a few tips for keeping the roads safer for everyone by preventing distractions behind the wheel.

An Automobile Accident Attorney Lists 3 Ways to Avoid Distracted Driving Collisions

1. Put Down Your Cell Phone

According to the National Safety Council, cell phone use is one of the primary sources of distracted driving. Even talking on the phone can reduce reaction times and impair decision-making abilities, especially for younger, less experienced drivers. Responding to a text while driving is especially dangerous: It’s like driving across a football field with your eyes closed.

2. Don’t Eat & Drive

Because it requires you to take your eyes off the road and breaks your concentration, eating while driving is an incredibly dangerous habit, increasing your chances of being in an accident by 80%.

3. Avoid Using the AC & Radio Controls

It may only take a moment to adjust the climate control in your car, but a single instant of distraction can be all it takes to cause an accident. To be safe, wait until you're at a stop light to adjust the temperature or find a new radio station.
