Driving and Using Your Phone (WPE08)

It goes without saying that when you’re driving, you shouldn’t use your cellphone. It’s something we all already know, right? Even so, one in four automobile crashes in the US is caused by texting and driving and, worryingly, this figure is increasing.

It’s tempting to use your cellphone while driving because it’s really useful; you can dial into that meeting, find the quickest route to your destination, or play your favorite songs with one swipe. But there are better ways to do all these things, without taking your full concentration off the road ahead.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

• Appreciate the dangers and consequences of using your phone while driving
• Understand the legislation about phone use while driving
• Choose safer alternatives

Why take this course?

It’s simple, really. You don’t want to be another statistic. While the work meeting or arriving on time is important, staying safe when you’re behind the wheel is vital. This course will help by giving you information and advice on alternatives to using your cellphone while driving. Don’t take the risk, take the course instead.
