How to Manage Distractions While Driving

Tips for Managing Distractions.  

 

  • Recognize that driving requires your full attention.
  • Use your cell phone only if absolutely necessary.
  • If you must use your phone, choose a safe time and place, keeping the conversation short.
  • Ask a passenger to place a call for you and, if possible, speak in your place.
  • Do not compose, send or read text messages while driving. In Minnesota texting while driving is illegal.
  • Ask passengers to help with directions or adjust dashboard controls.
  • Secure loose items in the vehicle so they don’t become projectiles or distractions in a sudden stop or crash.
  • Avoid intense, complicated or emotional conversations when driving.
  • Pull over to care for children.
  • Stop to eat or drink, rather than trying to eat or drink while driving.
  • Get plenty of rest.
  • Program your GPS prior to starting your trip.
  • Allow plenty of time for your trip.
