Featured AuthorPaige EMy only state crossing move was over ten years ago when my family left our Southern California roots for a new adventure in Arizona. In more recent years, local moves within the Valley haven't left me a stranger to moving. Whether it was moving into college dorms or into various new apartments, I have luckily always had the support of my friends and family to help with my moves. Away from work, you can find me blogging, traveling, enjoying time with family, and heading out to local events and checking out local bands with friends.

Whether you’re driving to work, school, or undertaking a more serious endeavor like a cross-country move, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that person in front of you; the one driving slowly, bouncing off the lane markers, seemingly unaware of the signal light change. You glance over and, sure enough, they’re focused on something other than the road. Perhaps it’s that little glowing message that simply cannot wait, or perhaps they’re attempting to clean up the soda that just dumped all over their center console, or perhaps they’re dealing with an unruly child in the backseat. Any of these scenarios present a distraction that takes the driver’s attention away from the road and the other people around them, and that’s not good.
According to a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, engaging in activities that take your eyes and hands away from driving, such as using mobile phones and texting, increases your risk of accident by three times!
