Reading maps or directions whilst driving is one of the most distracting things you can do. It involves taking your eyes off the road, diverting your attention and distracts you both physically and mentally.
Make sure that you read any route maps or directions and plan your journey before you start. If you need to refer back to the directions, stop in a safe place or give a passenger the map and ask them to direct you.
Don’t be distracted – give the road your full attention.
