American Insure-all has your Arlington/Smokey Point car insurance. As this year progresses, you might have some concerns about your vehicle insurance costs. In many states, car insurance fees have nearly doubled as compared to last year.
One of the reasons given for the sharp increase is distracted driving. As millennials – the generation that has been connected to their smartphones by their thumbs – pull out onto the road, the question becomes will they put down their phones or indulge in dashboard devices that allow them to stay connected? One thing that is well known is that texting and driving is a sure-fire way to have your eyes and mind doing something besides driving.
But what about other activities while driving? We all know that eating and driving isn’t recommended – spills, especially of hot food, choking and other possible problems and that everyone should pay attention to the cautionary statements on their prescription medicines. But what about listening to music or an audio book? Some studies have been done concerning audiobooks, and the reviews are mixed. In general, it is believed that for long, boring road trips an audiobook might actually help you stay awake and alert. However, for complicated driving where you need your full attention on the route, all those spoken words could get in the way.
