Accidents Like The State Route 167 DUI Collision Should Be Avoided

Avoid distractions. Did you know that distracted driving includes more than using your phone? Your eyes should be on the road at all times.

Anything that takes your eyes off the road like eating, getting something from your bag, interacting with passengers, applying makeup, shaving, etc are all types of distracted driving.
