The Illinois State Police are reminding residents to focus on the road. There have been a few accidents across Central Illinois recently that appear that they could have been avoidable.
State Trooper Sean Ramsey appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show. He says people who drive distracted should put themselves in the position of the loved ones of someone that dies in an accident.
Ramsey says there seems to be an unlimited number of ways people can drive distracted.
Ramsey says 100 percent of a driver’s attention needs to be on the road, and drivers should treat the road like its their job. He says get the job done and focus on distractions after you’ve reached to your destination.
