Below are a few activities that will help curb texting and driving:

  • Audio Books – With smart cars and systems to play virtually anything while driving, why not enjoy an audio book while travelling. Listening to a good story while on a long trip will keep the ride entertaining, insightful, and provide talking points.
  • Talk and Listen to Your Passengers – Talking to friends and family on a long trip is a great way to keep focused on the road and not on texting. Playing word games, telling stories, and listening will help you keep both eyes on the road at all times.
  • Listen to the Radio – On a long drive, listening to the radio can be interesting especially when driving out of state. Every state has local radio djs that often share stories about living in the area you happen to drive through so the radio can be educational.
