Do you know that 95% of collisions are due to human error?

Distraction, speeding, not wearing a seatbelt and driving under the influence of drink or drugs are the big fatal four on our county’s roads.

  • Put your phone in your glove compartment or set your phone to do not disturb before you start your journey
  • Adjust your speed and make sure you have time to react to the unexpected
