With summer officially here, that means more road trips and potential long car rides. It means more time to get distracted behind the wheel or picking up your phone to text someone. I want to convince you not to do that.
We all know texting and driving is dangerous, yet we’re all so easily distracted and provoked by our phones and it’s time we make a pact with ourselves to finally put it to rest and get back to safe driving. With that said, here are a few ideas on how to stop:
1. Practice Makes Perfect
Make it a habit that you don’t grab your phone vs being the habit of grabbing it every time it rings or buzzes.
2. Put Your Phone On Silent or Do Not Disturb
I don’t just mean vibrate, I mean silent or do not disturb mode so you won’t hear the notifications and run the risk of grabbing your phone.
3. Keep It In The Back Seat or Trunk
Seriously, if you can’t be trusted with the phone anywhere near the front seat, then before you start driving, leave it in your purse and stick that on the backseat or in the trunk.
How do you keep yourself from texting and driving?
This isn’t a sponsored post, this is me wanting to see a change and see others driving safer and less distracted.
