Easy Tips to STOP Distracted Driving featuring Drop Stop (Giveaway)

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. 
Stop distracted driving with a Drop Stop.

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. 


Drop Stop

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!

  1. People texting and driving is a real big peeve of mine, Holly. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen oncoming vehicles weaving in and out close to and over the center line. Not only are texting drivers likely to drop a cell phone but the very act of texting requires concentration and the use of eyes and hands for other than watching the road. Enjoyed your post!

    In addition, the kids know- you can mess with whoever you want- just NOT the driver.
