Numerous activities in a vehicle can divert a driver’s attention away from the road. These distractions all have one thing in common: They endanger the safety of drivers, passengers and bystanders. Each day, more than 15 people are killed and more than 1,200 injured in crashes reportedly involving a distracted driver.

Here are some things you should never do while driving a commercial vehicle:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone
  • Eating
  • Talking excessively with passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading maps
  • Programming a navigation system
  • Adjusting the radio
