Did you know that using your mobile phone while driving makes you 23 times more likely to have a car accident? Texting in particular has become a common distraction for many motorists.
It’s important to be aware of the dangers and keep your focus on the road. It might be tempting to pick up your mobile phone while stuck in traffic, but the law against using your mobile when driving still applies when you’re stationery – whether at traffic lights, stuck in a jam or even supervising a learner driver.
Keeping your phone out of reach is highly advisable – nothing is more important than your safety and the safety of others. If you regularly need to communicate while driving, try installing a hands-free feature, such as a Bluetooth headset and/or voice commands.
Safe driving from Britannia!
