Put Your Phone Down!

Whenever you get behind the wheel of a vehicle- any vehicle- you are potentially risking your life, as well as the lives of those who also share the road with you. Driving in today's world, despite the fact that cars are actually very crash-ready compared to your parent's generation, pose many safety concerns that were not as prevalent even a decade ago. With so many safety devices that vehicles today have, such as blind-spot notification, there are just as many (or more) safety concerns.
Let's go over a scenario that happens more times than you might think. You are cruising along in your car, when your phone buzzes on the seat next to you. Naturally, you pick it up, glancing only momentarily at the screen, to see a text from your wife. "Pick up bread", it reads. Before you can smile, it happens. IMPACT. The vehicle in front of you slammed on its brakes, which was an instantaneous reaction to the vehicle in front of it. This all happened in the blink of an eye.
The moral of this story: put the phone down, it can wait!
