February Was Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Facts You Should Know  

• It only takes a second and a collision can occur.

• Keep your eyes on the road, hands on the wheel – put your focus where it should be.

• Multi-tasking while driving could prove to be a fatal error in judgment.

• Distracted driving literally impairs your driving ability.

• Research indicates that driver distraction contributes to 20 to 30 per cent of all collisions.

• Distracted drivers are three times more likely to be involved in a collision than attentive drivers.

• Reaching for a moving object in the vehicle increased the risk of a collision or near collision by nine times; insects in the vehicle increased the risk by a factor of six; reading, applying make up, and dialing a hand-held device tripled the odds, and listening and talking  on a handheld device increased the risk by 1.3 times.

• A study of collisions involving distracted drivers found that the  most common distractions were things outside the car, adjusting a CD or the radio, other occupants in the car, and moving objects in the car.

• A driver in rush hour traffic needs to keep track of 3000 items including signs, traffic lights, other vehicles, passengers, pedestrians, and road and weather conditions. Compare that with a fighter pilot who only needs to keep track of 300 items in a regular non-combat mission.

• A car going 50 km/h travels about 13.9 meters (45 feet) in one second. One second is enough to be distracted, leading to a collision.

• Music volume should not be so loud that you cannot hear the sounds your vehicle makes, emergency vehicle sirens, or the ringing bells of trains when approaching a railroad crossing.
