Important Tips to Prevent Distracted Driving

Distracted driving poses risk not only to yourself and the occupants of your vehicle, but the random stranger or strangers whose lives you may impact.  We are so accustomed to cars that we often forget that a car is a deadly weapon.  It is a huge piece of metal, glass and plastic that hurtles along at highway speeds without regard for what it comes in contact with.  Without a focused driver behind the wheel, a car can cause significant destruction.  We need to respect it for the serious risk of harm it poses. The lawyers at Decof, Decof & Barry, P.C. and the organization urge you to stop distracted driving and keep your eyes on the road.

When you take your focus off the road for seconds, accidents can happen.  And it is not only your distracted driving; it is the distracted driving of others, multiplying the risk to everyone on the road.  While you cannot control the actions of others, you can minimize the risk of it by staying focused.  It is amazingly simple to reduce distracted driving by following certain pieces of advice, such as put your cell phone away and out-of-sight and if you need to use your cell phone, pull over and then call or text.  Being a little behind schedule is a minor inconvenience compared to the severe risk posed by distracted driving.  Here are additional tips and information from
