What Makes You a Distracted Driver?

Do you know what constitutes distracted driving? Most people think it's talking on the phone, texting or doing something with your hands, like putting on makeup. The truth is that distracted driving is any activity that takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel and your mind off driving.

Most motorists get distracted occasionally, but Napleton Volvo has some helpful tips to keep you focused. One is to stay off your cell phone. Being bored while driving isn't a good enough reason to get on the phone. If you have an emergency, certainly get the phone, but pull off to the shoulder of the road to make your call.

Another great safety tip is to stop driving while drowsy. Maybe you can make it to your destination safely, but the odds aren't in your favor. Drowsy drivers crash four times more than non-drowsy drivers.
