When it comes to driving, nothing is more dangerous than distractions. Though food, drink, music, and people certainly fall into that category, texting and driving is one of riskiest things you can do when you’re behind the wheel of a car. You’re not only thinking about something else — looking at a picture you just received, reading a message, or sending one yourself –, but you’re also not looking at the road. The combination of these two can be deadly under the right conditions, so let’s take a look at the risks that accompany texting and driving.
It’s estimated that the average American drives 29.2 miles per day — to and from work — totaling 46 minutes of driving time. Although it may seem benign to pick up your cell phone during this period, especially when traffic is slow and you find yourself getting bored, the reality of the situation is quite the opposite.
Drivers ed classes provide excellent tools for concerned parents and distracted teens; not only will you both learn how to avoid turning to your phone, but you’ll gain experience on the road. Since inexperience is such a factor in accidents, beginner driving school can turn the tide. Whether you live in the frigid northeast or sunny Chandler driving classes are available to teach you how to be a safe driver.
