I know many of you out there are thinking – could there be more snow? Three storms in less than two weeks – whew we are getting hammered this March. One of our friends, who shall remain unnamed, asked us to stop doing the snow dance!
I realize everyone thinks our business is related to bad weather, but in truth it is predicated on many other factors. One major factor is distracted driving.
When I came to the road as a new driver we were taught anything from changing the radio station to pushing in the lighter was distracting and now, well now we have phones ringing, phones texting, making sure our electronics are charged, and if they aren’t getting them plugged in so they will be charged. We have music to play and calls to make and receive. It is unbelievable how many of our day’s action items happen behind the wheel.
Those people who were trying to teach me not to push in a lighter or change the radio station while behind the wheel couldn’t think up the kind of distraction we deal with today. Yet here we all are plugging in and working while in the car – that isn’t just me right? So while the snow is a contributing factor, distraction may be a bigger factor; and a storm that drops 24 inches just keeps us all home watching TV – or in my case playing blizzard Texas hold ‘em.
At the end of the day our business was closed, I lost at poker but the snow was beautiful. The only thing we can do is work hard to be less distracted especially in the bad weather. Individually we can make the road a safer experience.
In any case, Allston Collision Center will be there to do its job should bad weather, distracted driving or some other event happen to your vehicle.
