Are you phone safe when you drive?


Resist the distraction - it's not just your life!

Imagine you’re driving to the shops at 30mph, a message comes through to your mobile - you decide to look down at it for just three seconds.

In those three seconds you will have travelled 39 metres (132ft) which is the same as the length of nine cars.

But a child stepped out a second before and you just didn’t see them….!

Makes you think doesn’t it?

Being distracted by your phone can include:

  • Social media
  • Talking
  • Texting
  • Music
  • Or even putting it on charge!

But who gets distracted?

  • Motorists
  • Cyclists 
  • Pedestrians 
  • Motorcyclists
