At Trailer Boss, we encourage you to put down your phone while driving or while hauling a trailer.
It is true that thousands of people die every year due to distracted driving. From texting to surfing the web, it is difficult to disconnect these days. That said, we urge you to make the pledge to pay better attention to the road by:
Not using cell phones while driving, even at stop lights or in neighborhoods
Understanding the actual dangers of distracted driving
Informing others who text or call you while they are driving that you would be happy to finish the conversation once they are no longer driving
Remind others of the dangers of distracted driving and especially if you see someone do it while you are a passenger in their vehicle
At Trailer Boss, we also want to remind you that there are many types of distracted driving, from eating to applying makeup! We encourage you to use your head and make reasonable steps to cut down on these activities!
If you are unsure of which tasks are considered a distraction, remember that multitasking is a myth, especially while driving. So instead of successfully doing two things at once while you are driving a vehicle, your brain is switching attention back and fourth between these tasks. So if the task you are doing requires even part of your attention, it is best to wait and complete it when you reach your destination!
