The weather is changing, it’s grey out there, visibility is that much lower and to top it all, the roads are slippery as the oil rises when it rains.
What better time than to pay attention to staying safe, paying attention and driving safely. With conditions more challenging, taking attention away from the road can be lethal.
When Bobby Nitro thinks of distracted driving, cellphones come to mind, but so do noisy children. You know the situation; a bunch of raucous and excited kids in the back seat so noisy you can hardly think. Thing is, that’s not on them, it’s on you.
It’s the adult’s job to make the in-car rules, not the children. When you put a stern but friendly face on, make sure each one is belted in, and tell them that craziness can only happen when you get to your destination.
Being aware that distracted driving is dangerous, and taking precautions up front to prevent this, is a positive step towards better road safety for all.
