Daily Direct LLC is a leading service for transporting motorcycles and other small vehicles, shipping almost everywhere in the contiguous United States. With over two decades of experience, the company is dedicated to customer satisfaction and focuses first and foremost on transportation safety issues, such as distracted driving.

Distractions jeopardize the health and safety of the driver as well as any passengers and bystanders. Distracted driving is any action that may take a driver’s attention away from the act of driving, including talking or texting on a cell phone, using navigation tools, watching videos, adjusting the radio or a music player, and eating or drinking.

Text messaging has been identified as the worst distraction because it requires such a high level of concentration and takes the driver’s attention off the road. When texting, the driver’s eyes stray from the road an average of five seconds. A car moving at 55 mph will travel the length of a football field in five seconds. Educating the driving public about these and other safety issues is the best way to reduce distracted driving.
