As the reality of daily life across South Florida continues to change amid the COVID-19 quarantine, one thing we’ve noticed is a spike in distracted driving accidents across our community. While our devices remain a lifeline for news and connection to family and loved ones, it’s important to remember to put the phone down if you must venture out in your vehicle for groceries or other essential supplies.
We understand. Everyone is anxious about coronavirus. But as a community, we must work to put that anxiety aside when we are behind the wheel. Additionally, and with less motorists on the road, speeds have a tendency to increase. This combination of speed and distracted driving could prove to be a recipe for danger.
Right now, the best thing we can do is to slow down and prioritize what is most important. The last place you want to end up right now is in the emergency room after a serious car accident. Take a deep breath, put down your phone while you’re driving and be a little extra careful.
