Distracted Driving – 10 Years later

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in The Daily Drive

Do you remember what you were doing a decade ago?   Believe it or not, the dangers of distracted driving were with us ten years ago.   Cell phones really did not emerge as part of our daily life until the mid 90’s but in less than 20 years they have changed completely our society, some for good and some for bad.

A decade sounds like a long time and the irony is that in the last two or three years, distracted driving emerged as a prominent national safety issue, the reality is, distracted driving has been an issue for quite some time.   The video below is first hand evidence of how long distracted driving has been and continues to be an issue.

Nikki Taylor was at the height of her modeling career when her then boyfriend almost killed her by trying to answer a cell phone.

DefensiveDriving.com would like to remind everyone we have individual and personal responsibilities to those who share the roads with us and we are glad to offer several of our online driver safety videos from our program as a public service at our Safe Driver Resources page – click here, to see a number of videos which will assist you in make sure you are following safe driving practices.   Hang up, it’s just not that important.
