Driving takes skill and sustained eye concentration, which requires
a continued discipline, so its difficulty is widely underestimated. People naturally
want eye contact.
Passengers need to be reminded that the driver, “can talk to them,
but can not look at them.”
Remember, “eyes on the road, hands on the wheel.” Drivers must
continue to focus on the road, while avoiding the numerous driver
distractions such as cell phones, texting, GPS, the wide
array of possible diversions.
ASF also recommends that the front seat passenger serve
as co-pilot as two people concentrating on the road aid safety.
ASF is a non-profit 501(c)(3)organization.
