Distracted driving is the second leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C. and one of the most common distractions behind the wheel is a mobile electronic device. While we can feel pressured to be connected all the time, using your phone while driving makes you a danger to yourself and others.
When driving distracted, you take longer to react to unexpected situations and are less aware of what’s going on around you. Not only is using your phone while driving a bad idea, it’s against the law and can result in penalties and fines.
When you’re driving, leave your phone alone. Make sure you understand the law, review the facts about distracted driving and learn the rules around using your mobile device in a vehicle.
