This is National Safe Driving Week.

Distracted driving is the theme for this year’s awareness program. The CEO of the Insurance Brokers Association of Manitoba Grant Wainikka explains what constitutes distracted driving stating the most notable change they’ve seen over the last several years has been of course texting or communicating with your device while driving and this has now become almost on par with impaired driving as far as serious accidents that are caused on the road.  However he says distracted driving can mean putting on your makeup or it could mean fidgeting with your radio, with the consul on your car, even conversing with people in your vehicle as statistics show that as you grow the number of people in your vehicle especially at some ages that the chances of an accident are higher.

             

Wainikka adds as more people began owning smart devices the rate of accidents caused by distracted driving has skyrocketed over the decade.
