On your phone while driving, you’re driving blind

On your phone while driving, you’re driving blind

AFL Vic’s valued partner the TAC launched a new campaign last week addressing the issue of distracted driving.

The campaign message to the community is clear: A glance at your phone while driving is the same as driving blind.

You can view the campaign TVC online here

Here are some tips for what you can do to avoid distracted driving:
– When possible, install the ‘do not disturb’ function on your phone – watch this step by step guide on how to install
– Put your phone out of reach such as in the glovebox or boot of the car.
– Turn your phone on silent, or turn it off completely when driving.
– As a passenger, speak up and call out bad behaviour when you see it. Encourage others to be safe.

When travelling at 50 km per hour, a glance down at your phone means you’ll travel up to 28 metres blind.

Whether driving for work or outside of work duties, we all have a role to play in supporting the TAC in their vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on our roads.
