1. Electronic gadgets
It may sound cruel, but as social advertisement says “If you text and drive, your next message may be your last”. How often do you use a mobile phone while driving? Urgent message or call from family member, social media scrolling while waiting for the green light, navigating with a GPS – those are just few examples of how mobile phone can be a dangerous distraction for a driver. Use your headphones instead of picking a phone and do not text while driving, even if you wait in the traffic jam or on the lights, says Dr. Chowdhury, auto accident doctor Largo.
2. Food and drink
How tempting is it to stop by a drive-through restaurant after a long hard day of work? Or eat in the car in the morning before an important meeting for which you may be late? It may be hard to resist, but you should resist. Driving is a complex multitasking activity, so by deciding to eat you add another task to your list. This causes the loss of attention and control increasing your likelihood of making a mistake, hence getting into an accident .
