Mobile phones are increasingly becoming a part of our driving experience through podcasts, maps, and voice calls. As a result, it’s easy to forget that it is illegal for them to be used whilst driving. Technically, you can be fined for using your phone whilst the motor is running, even if you are using it to pay in the drive-through takeaway!
Bearing this in mind, we wanted to spread awareness on just how detrimental a glance at your phone can be whilst driving. So, we came up with a fun game to pit your driving knowledge against your reaction time — combining the use of a phone with your ability to stop the car as soon as a hazard appears. Introducing our #DrivenToDistraction game!
You begin by driving down a country road before reaching a STOP sign where you’ll have to click to stop the car as fast as possible. Sounds simple right? Well, you’ll then receive a message on your phone with a question about road safety, be sure to get this right but remember to concentrate on the road still. We’ll then test your response time when you’re hit with another STOP sign.
What are you waiting for? Click on the game below and share with your friends to see who has the best reaction time:
