Speak With Your Family About Texting While Driving & Make a Distracted Driving PolicyTrusted Content
Legally reviewed by:Erik Abrahamson, J.D. August 27, 2014
Most of us already know that distracted driving has become a big problem in the United States.
What all too many of us fail to realize is how our own behaviors take our attention away from the road.
Speaking with Your Family
If you haven’t talked with your family about the dangers of texting while driving, perhaps it’s time that you should.
Don’t assume that your loved ones are being safe and responsible out there. Make sure that they have the facts and know that texting while driving is unacceptable under any circumstances.
The Utah Safety Council has put together a couple of tools that are particularly helpful for talking about this issue with your friends and family.
- Their distracted driving activity encourages loved ones to take an honest look at just how dangerous some of their current behaviors may be.
- The 5-minute safety talk is centered around a short presentation that promotes an open dialogue about distracted driving in general.
Develop a Distracted Driving Policy
Creating a distracted driving policy for your household is a great way to encourage everyone to recognize the dangers of being distracted behind the wheel and acting according.
Consider taking some time to sit down with your loved ones to develop a commitment to staying focused behind the wheel that the entire family can stick to.
