Driving demands 100% attention because when you are out on the road, with the control wheel of your car in your hand, you are not only controlling your life but the life of other people who are in the car with you, and of the people who are out on the streets.
With the advancement in the technology, sources of distractions while a person is driving has also grown, making mobile phones, the number one and the co-passengers number two source.
While an adult passenger will understand the importance of keeping attention while you drive, the kids don’t always get it and so the parents are often distracted and then they take their eyes off the road to tell their kids to behave.
Well, this is for all the parents out there, if you are the kind we just mentioned above, it is time for a change because the new traffic laws will penalize any driver that takes their eyes off the street for more than 2 seconds, even if it is to tell their kids.
The National Transport Commission of Australia is in the process of drafting a new set of rules to change the ones that came into action back in 1999. Those laws empowered a driver to get distracted.
The new set of rules that are coming up will allow the driver to use GPS and voice control on their phones while they are on the drive as the experts say the previous laws were not compatible with the new emerging technologies like smartphones.
GPS is a technology of need these days but this does not mean you will be allowed to text your friends or call them while you are on your way in the vehicle. Also, neglect doing it to maintain your safety in the first place.
