Distracted Driving. Not Worth The Risk!

12:00 AM — 11:59 PM

Did you know that checking a text for 5 seconds means that at 90km/h, you’ve travelled the length of a football field blindfolded? A reminder to all motorists that driving while distracted, slows your reaction time, reduces what you ‘see’ in your environment around you and increases your risk of being involved in a crash. #NotWorththeRisk
