Learn the facts and the risks of distracted driving.
Distracted drivers are everywhere.
If you spot a distracted driver, the best thing that you can do is distance yourself. If they are paying attention to their texts and not the road, chances are they'll be stopping really fast sooner or later. Watch out for the people with their phone up to their ear. Assume they are going to make the wrong move so you aren't surprised when it happens. Don’t rely on turn signals, stoplights, and stop signs. If you maintain a safe distance between you and vehicle in front of you, that should give you ample time to slow down and stop if necessary.
