Whether you are a professional truck driver or just part of the general motoring public, distracted driving is probably something we've all done, likely even without thinking about it.
Some common examples of distracted driving are when you’re heading down the highway and your phone buzzes: it’s your spouse, texting to see when you’ll be home. So, you mindlessly type a quick reply back. Or, your stomach starts to growl an hour into your trip to the cabin, and you remember you’ve got a bag of chips in the back seat – so you reach around and grab it, thinking nothing of it. But, both of these are examples of distracted driving, and it’s not safe.
It’s easy to think “it won’t happen to me”, or, “this is just a quick text”. But, collisions can happen very quickly, even to safe drivers. So, that's why we set out to debunk the myth that you can drive while distracted and still drive safely.
