Keep Yourself Safe: Animation to End Reckless and Distracted Driving

Reckless and distracted driving are a prominent cause of harm all over the world, and it’s very much important to learn about its causes and preventions. As someone who is myself just beginning to learn to drive, knowledge on this subject is vital! Please take the time to familiarize yourself and your loved ones with the preventative measures of reckless and distracted driving listed in the video and description below. Remember that your life is more important than any trivial distraction. Thank you! As a basic guideline, a full list of preventative measures to end reckless and distracted driving for informational purpose is given here, not all of which were fully fleshed out in the video: -Turn off your phone! This means keeping it on silent and out of reach if possible, or even entirely turned off. -Turn off loud music and other audible distractions! If music is drowning out your thoughts, turn it down or off, and make sure you do it before you start driving! Similarly, if you are easily distracted by lyrics or spoken audio, turn that off as well. -Never wear earbuds or headphones while in the car, ever! If you are unable to hear the surrounding traffic such as horns and emergency vehicles, it is very unsafe (and illegal!) -Never take your hands off the wheel for reasons unintended for driving! Even turning down your music while driving is unsafe, so make sure everything in your vehicle is safe and as you like it before you begin driving. If you must, pull over somewhere safely to adjust things! -Let your passengers know not to distract you before you begin driving! Passenger distractions can include loud talking, any talking directed to the driver, sudden or loud movements, and video or audio from personal devices. Thank you very much for watching!
