Drunk drivers are not the only road hazard during the holidays. As families in Virginia and throughout the U.S. make their annual treks “home for the holidays,” driver fatigue is another reason you should exercise caution on America’s highways.
When you are driving, one of the biggest frustrations can be dealing with drivers who are not paying attention to the road. One driver might be texting; another, talking on the phone; still another, using their dashboard touch-screen or navigating a destination. Distracted driving is a major problem that motorists face. In fact, on any given day, nearly 660,000 drivers will use their cell phones while driving.
