Distracted driving costs the economy $40 billion each year

At least nine road users in Tennessee and the country are killed each day and a further 100 are seriously injured in accidents caused by distracted drivers according to the National Safety Council. Distracted driving crashes also cost the economy about $40 billion each year. Common driver distractions include conversations with passengers, sophisticated automobile entertainment and navigation systems and eating and drinking behind the wheel, but studies suggest that cellphone use is a particularly thorny problem.

Tips to prepare your vehicle and insurance for winter roads

While Tennessee may not be as far north as the states that get the worst winter weather, that doesn't mean that the seasonal change won't affect your safety on the road. More crashes tend to occur in the winter months, which means you'll need to take extra steps to keep yourself safe on the roads when the temperature outside starts dropping.

Time shifts can result in dangerous driving conditions

The first weekend of November means that clocks will be turned back one hour in most parts of the country. While Tennessee residents may enjoy getting an extra hour of sleep, the change may have negative consequences as well. For instance, it could have an impact on a person's internal body clock, which could lead to an increased risk of drowsy driving. According to the National Sleep Foundation, there are 6,400 deaths caused each year by tired drivers.
