How you can stay safe on the road

While your own driving report card might not be perfect, there are a number of simple steps you can take that can help support safer driving. Here’s what you can do about it.

Tips to avoid distraction

Avoid the phone - As our study shows, it can be hard to resist. Keep your phone out of site to avoid temptation, or put it on do not disturb.
Do your best not to rush (or stress) – We get it, running late is sometimes unavoidable. Speeding to your destination can be dangerous, though. Try to leave some extra time and do your best to take a breath and slow down.
Be a defensive driver – Always be aware the speed of other drivers and their proximity to you. Keep a safe distance, so if something happens, you have time to react or stop.
