Online Driver Safety Course for decreasing distrated driving

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Crash & Burn: Life in the Fastlane

As a driver on the road , you face many distractions on the road. Some are caused by you , while others are caused by other driver’s. When I took a Driver Safety course, I learned to look out for these hassles on the road.  You see people eating while driving on the road.  You see parents spending more time turned around focusing on their kids than focusing on the road. The biggest distraction I notice is people driving while talking on their cell phones.

Drivers who talk on their cell phones are slower to react to brake lights. They also need to keep a greater following distance. However, they will also take longer to regain the speed they lost when they braked, frustrating everyone.  Overall, talking on the cell phone impedes the overall flow of traffic.

By taking a Online Driver Safety Course, you will learn of the the laws regarding talking on your cell phone. The following are a few Texas Laws regarding Driving using a cell phone:

-Drivers under 18 and learner’s permit holders in their first six months of driving are banned from any cell use. School bus drivers cannot use a cell when they have children on the bus. No driver may use a cell phone in a school zone, whether driving or stationary. The cities of Nacogdoches, Arlington, and McAllen have banned texting while driving. El Paso and Alvin have banned handhelds and texting while driving.

-Other cities have enacted distracted-driving laws. Check with your rental car outlet, friends, or family in your destination city, as the laws in a few Texan cities are currently being made or have recently changed.
