How Does Your Story End!

This month I would like to utilize this page to challenge you and to share with you some thoughts about Distracted Driving. Whether you manage a large or small group of drivers, or you are a company of one, my sincere hope is that you will take time this month to review your company policy on distracted driving and your own thoughts about distracted driving.

I am afraid that we hear so much about Distracted Driving that we become numb to the dangers associated with this epidemic. Statistics indicate that we have an issue when driving and staying focused, but many people continue to allow distractions to rule within the environment of the vehicle.

Today, I would like to challenge you to think about your last drive, were you distracted or focused, did you drive intentional or did you just drive with little concern or awareness of your surroundings?

At the end of the drive and at the end of the day…How Does Your Story End?

Thank you,

Ben Langley
