Fatal distraction

You may think you’re used to multi-tasking. But texting and using the internet while you’re watching TV isn’t the same as doing so while you’re behind the wheel.

texting whilst drivingYour reaction times are 50% slower while talking on a phone, and you’re four times more likely to crash if you use a mobile while driving.

Distracted driving isn’t just dangerous for you – it puts your passengers, other drivers, cyclists and pedestrians at risk too.

Whether you’re younger or older, using a mobile phone, texting, using in-vehicle technologies (such as satnavs) and even eating can distract you from the road. Even if it’s just for a few seconds – that’s all it takes to have or cause a crash.

Please remember:

  • There’s no safe way to use a phone whilst driving – turn it off or put it on silent, and put it out of reach.
  • Be a safe passenger – let the driver focus on the road.
  • Just drive – eating, drinking and smoking whilst driving reduces your reaction time.
  • Set your satnav or your sound system before you drive. If you need to adjust them, pull over in a safe place.
