According to multiple Insurance Institute for Highway Safety studies, “distraction” is the leading cause of lane-drift crashes. This includes being distracted by other passengers, using cell phones, applying makeup, and eating while driving.
Although it’s impossible to eliminate all distractions while driving, limiting the number of possible things/events/people/etc. that may take your focus from driving can truly make a life or death difference.
Most importantly, Put Down Your Phone!
Be safe Portland.
