Tips to avoid driver distractions
Before you get going, there are a few things you can do to take away the temptation of using your phone while driving.
- Activate ‘Do not Disturb While Driving’ for Apple phones or ‘Do not Disturb’ for Android phones before you get into the car.
- Set your GPS, or playlist before leaving home (Open and P2 licence holders only).
- Remind your passengers that you need to focus on the road. Make sure kids and pets are safely restrained.
- If you really need to make a call or send a message, pull over and park safely first.
