Be A Role Model for the people you love

Ready Behind The Wheel….it starts with *you*.

Think about it.

Secondary activities have become an everyday occurrence behind
the wheel of American motorists. Every day, people are:

  • text messaging
  • talking on a cell phone
  • putting on and changing music
  • watching a movie
  • writing a grocery list
  • painting nails
  • shaving
  • putting in contact lenses

…even when behind the wheel.

Distracted driving has eclipsed drunkdriving as the Number One safety concern of the driving public. http://www.unews.utah.edu/old/p/062206-1.html

Remember, distractions cause inattention blindness, taking 31% of the brain away from the primary task of driving.

Watch this brief eye-opening awareness

Being ready behind the wheel starts with you.

Decide TODAY to be ready behind the wheel every time you turn the ignition of your car.  Your loved ones will thank you for it.
