I drive A LOT. I drive A LOT on scary-fast Texas highways. I see people speeding down the lanes on their phones, eating lunch, putting on makeup, taking videos and photos - you name it. It is unbelievable what people do behind the wheel of a car! I take driving very seriously. Not only am I trying to teach a teenager road safety, but no less than 5 times in the last year if I would not have been acutely aware while driving, I would have been in major accidents. Recently I partnered with the Drop Stop to show you how easy it is to install this simple preventative tool to help stop distracted driving and stay safe.
So, let's just get this out of the way...I am a Shark Tank junkie. I own a ton of Shark Tank products. I love supporting other entrepreneurs and being able to grab inventive and amazing items first! I was excited to try out the Drop Stop and to share it with you all! I installed it in my car and have been testing it out for weeks. It helps keep those nasty crevices in my car clear of clutter, but it also encourage and promotes distraction free driving.
What is the Drop Stop, you may ask? It is a specially designed, easy to install (it took me 30 second on each side of the car) seat gap filler made of high quality neoprene. It literally closes the gap between the car seat and the center console. What does that mean? No clutter - food, junk, change, etc. falling down the crack...but more importantly no cell phones or other important items going that way either and less chance you will instinctually look down, become distracted, and try to grab for the item. Simple right....but so effective!
Did you know Driver Distraction has taken over drunk driving as the #1 killer on the roads? Incredible right? In just one second an everything can change. The inventors of the Drop Stop created is "as an affordable vehicle safety and convenience invention that quite simply, blocks that distracting gap once and for all." This simple and affordable product quickly became one of the top selling Shark Tank inventions and it may just save your life. This issue is so important even insurance companies see the value in stopping distracted driving.
In support of April being National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, let's talk about some easy ways you can reduce (or end) your own distracted driving:
