According to the Mars Inc., 94% of consumers would prefer receiving chocolate rather than flowers for Valentine’s Day. They rank heart-shaped boxes of chocolate as the best edible Valentine’s Day gift. Although that is true, arriving alive is the greatest gift to give a loved one. If you are planning a night out with your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, here are some tips to help everyone arrive safely for their special night out.
- Take care of any possible driving distractions before getting behind the wheel. As a general rule, if a driver cannot devote their full attention because of an activity, it’s considered a distraction.
- Put aside all electronic distractions. Don’t call, send text messages, emails, or use the internet while driving.
- Finish dressing and personal grooming at home for your night out before getting on the road.
Remember, even though chocolates are preferred on February 14th, the best gift to give a loved one is not driving distracted. We wish all our commuters a happy and safe Valentine’s Day!
