"It's a Driver's Duty to Avoid Distractions"
Distracted driving is just plain dangerous. More to the point distracted driving causes accidents and results in people getting hurt.
Whether it's talking on a cel phone, shaving, eating, drinking coffee or putting on lipstick it all boils down to the same thing. A driver who doesn't have their eyes on the road.
Bob McHugh's article in the Friday April 26, 2013, edition of the Vancouver Province provides some great insights into the very serious problem of distracted driving.
Because as McHugh's states in his article:
" Even at a speed as low as 50 km/h, a car will tavel 14 metres in one second. The few seconds it takes to read and e-mail or take a gulp of coffee could be too long, if you miss a car pulling out from a side road or a traffic light change. Spill your coffee or drop a cigarette and those few seconds of diverted attention could change the rest of your life, or the lives of others."
That about nails it.
