Did you know you’re in a competition every time you get behind the wheel? No, you’re not competing with other drivers, you’re competing against all the temptations that could lead to a crash.
Whether that’s speeding, driving drowsy, getting behind the wheel after a few drinks, or having the cell phone in one hand and the steering wheel in the other, there’s always something competing for your safety.
Be a winner – when you are behind the wheel, concentrate on the task at hand and make it to your destination safely.
