As spring break approaches, students planning on travelling over the break are cautioned to take extra care while driving.
Distracted driving is a leading cause of accidents, especially among college age students. Students are warned specifically to avoid using cellphones while driving, to pay careful attention to the road, and look for pedestrians, animals, and safety hazards.
Being prepared can save not only the life of the driver, but the lives of those around them. Knowing how to react to animals in the road, how to drive in bad weather, and times to avoid driving if possible, can reduce the risk of possible accidents.
