Implementing a safe driving plan may increase focus

Driving in Pennsylvania can be dreadful depending on the traffic conditions, the weather or unexpected environmental hazards that distract from a person's focus and visibility. People who do not put adequate effort toward focusing on what they are doing while they are driving, are at a much higher risk of being involved in a serious car accident that could alter their life or that of someone else. 

While the majority of people are familiar with statistics discussing the dangers of reckless behavior like speeding or texting while driving, many people still participate in such behaviors at some point or another. Nationwide Insurance suggests that people consider implementing a safe driving plan. This personal commitment to driving safely can maintain some general practices, but fluctuate in terms of detail each time a person drives.

For example, they may always commit to wearing their seatbelt, avoiding the use of electronic devices and staying sober each time they drive. Depending on the length of their drive and where they are going, people should factor in whether or not they will need to eat or program a GPS and make adequate time to do those things without multitasking while they are driving. They should also adjust their car to effectively meet their needs while they are driving so they do not have to spend time manipulating things like the radio, climate controls and mirrors. 

DriveSafer also reminds people that if they are a passenger in a vehicle, they also participate in responsible behavior to avoid creating a dangerous distraction for their driver. They should refrain from talking on their phone, stay out of the way of the driver and make sure their seatbelt is fastened. Their behavior can help to encourage the driver to engage in responsible and safe driving practices.
