NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., January 11, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of highway accidents — but the good news is, it can largely be avoided. In a new statement to the press, the car accident lawyers at I Accident Lawyer offer a few practical steps for minimizing distracted driving.
“For starters, don’t hesitate to turn your cell phone off,” say the firm’s car accident lawyers. “Or else, place it out of reach. You may miss a text while you’re driving, but that’s fine. You can return it later.”
Have your GPS set, your music where you like it, change ready and any beverages safely in their cup holders. Avoid having to fumble with these items as you drive.

Getting organized is also crucial. “Have your GPS set, your music where you like it, change ready and any beverages safely in their cup holders,” I Accident Lawyer Robert Koenig advises. “Avoid having to fumble with these items as you drive.”
Another tip from the car accident lawyers? Remember that distraction isn’t just about phones. “Eating, applying makeup, even having an intense conversation with someone — all of these things distract your attention from the road," I Accident Lawyer says. "Be aware of all these potential distractions and do what you’re able to minimize them.”
