At different times in our lives, we may have come across stories of drivers taking their eyes off the road to read a text message resulting in horrific accidents. The next time you hear that irresistible beep or feel that buzz, remember these 5 reasons not to text and drive.
- It’s Illegal
In Nigeria, there are many grey areas when it comes to the dos and don’ts of driving. However, texting while driving is an offense and you will be penalized if caught.
- Consider Your Passengers
Transporting other human beings in your vehicle is a tremendous responsibility. Sending or reading a text message while driving puts your passengers at a higher risk. Stay focus and protect their lives.
- Consider Other Motorists
Texting while driving puts other drivers at risk. Always be mindful of other motorists around you.
4. It Only Takes A Couple of Seconds to Park Your Vehicle
If you cannot resist the urge to check your text messages (or take a call) while driving, simply park your vehicle on the side of the road. Remember, red lights and stop signs are not safe places to check your cell phone.
- Hands-free Technology Is Easy to Use & Widely Available
Brands are equipping their latest cars with technology that connects your cell phone to your vehicle. If you drive an older model vehicle, there are different car accessories you can buy to make your driving experience safer.
At Dreamworks Direct, we are socially responsible and we care about the safety of all motorists. This is why we have taken it upon ourselves to bring awareness to this epidemic. Our Don’t Text and Drive campaign encourages motorists to focus more on driving.
