Distracted driving isn't just a concern for the younger drivers.
A recent study by University of California San Diego Health found that 75% of seniors felt they are capable of using a hands-free device while driving. And of those who have a cell phone, 60% of them talk on it while driving!
Experts say using the phone while driving increases the risk of a crash by 4 times! Hand held and hands free are equally dangerous. This is the same as driving with 0.08 blood alcohol. If you add in texting it increases the risk of a crash by 8 - 16 times!
Auto premiums are rising due to 2 major factors, distracted driving being the biggest! Please don't drive distracted, it can wait.
