Deadly Driver Distractions

A new survey of 1500 drivers has found that UK drivers are easily distracted… with children in the car as the biggest culprit of driver distraction.

Almost a third of the drivers surveyed have admitted that their children proved the biggest disruption to their concentration whilst behind the wheel, with a variety of other interferences affecting their driving.

May drivers attributed a busy lifestyle to a need to use their mobile phones whilst driving (despite many admitting to using phones when driving purely for Social Media). Other interruptions to a normal flow of driving included changing the radio channel, paying attention to passenger’s instructions when driving, trying to comprehend the sat nav’s directions, or even ogling attractive pedestrians.

Whatever the cause of your distraction when driving, remember that the road requires your maximum concentration. Anything less is simply bad driving.

Safe driving from Britannia!
