5. Driving Safety

Good drivers develop habits that focus their full attention on driving. Some drivers can develop bad habits that can be very dangerous when driving. Some bad habits that distract your attention away from driving are:

  • Driving when ill, upset or angry.
  • Driving while eating and drinking.
  • Driving while adjusting the radio or changing CDs/tapes/digital players.
  • Driving while calling, answering, talking or texting on a mobile phone.
  • Reading while driving.
  • Driving while drowsy or fatigued.

NOTE: Florida law prohibits the operation of a motor vehicle while texting.
