Put Down the Phone
This one is a no-brainer. We’ve all heard the distracted driving stats — in Ontario distracted driving accidents have doubled in the past 15 year; every half hour someone in Ontario is injured due to distracted driving; in 2016 distracted driving accounted for more collisions than any other factor — we can go on! And with distracted driving laws becoming much tougher in Ontario beginning today, there is more incentive than ever to be law-abiding. This year, let’s all resolve to put an end to this bad safety habit. Need a few helpful tips to get you started?
