Types of Distracted Driving
January in New Hampshire and Vermont brings cold and snow which can make driving on our winding roads difficult. During your commute it's important to stay focused and alert to be aware of any inclement weather or dangerous road conditions. It's also important to remember that distracted driving can add to that danger, and can cause undue car accidents that can hurt yourself or others.
At the Law Offices of Van Dorn, Curtiss and Rousseau we value the safety of all those who live in New Hampshire and Vermont and want to remind you of the risks of distracted driving, especially during the winter months. This is especially imperative for those with teen drivers, who are inexperienced with driving and have a higher incidence of being distracted. But we all need a reminder every so often to put down the phone or not eat while driving, because the safety of all those on the road is paramount. Types of distracted driving to avoid include:
- Texting or talking on your cell phone
- Eating or drinking
- Grooming or applying makeup
- Using GPS systems
While this is not an exhaustive list of the many things that can distract us while we drive, our experienced automobile accident lawyers hope to remind you of the dangers of distracted driving. Whether you have a family and drive with your kids or drive alone, staying focused on the road will help keep you and other drivers safe these winter months and beyond.
