Distracted driving is one of the largest causes of collisions, injuries, and deaths on Canada’s roads.
And while distracted driving is many things, the nature of distractions has evolved with the vehicle. It’s not just the phone anymore. It’s the massive dashboard screens, it’s the endless features, it’s everything in the car. Staying safe boils down to two things: stay focused on the road, and whenever possible deal with distractions before you leave or after you stop.
CAA’s most recent distracted driving campaign #BeforeYouDrive urges drivers to get it all out of the way before leaving the driveway.
