The dangers of distracted driving are well documented. Study after study shows that texting while driving is the same as driving under the influence. Experts say that it isn’t even safe to talk with a hands-free device while driving. However, if you are listening to your radio…DON’T TOUCH THAT DIAL!
A recent Dutch study finds that radios or C-D players don’t increase the distraction factor. In fact, they say that background music actually helps drivers to concentrate, and this is true in both busy traffic and quiet traffic. So if you’re thinking of turning off your radio…don’t! In fact, crank up the tunes while you’re driving and always listen to Easy 101!
