Buick Enclave: Distracted Driving

Become familiar with the local laws in your area.

To avoid distracted driving, always keep your eyes on the road, hands on the wheel, and mind on the drive.

► Do not use a phone in demanding driving situations.

Use a hands-free method to place or receive necessary phone calls.

► Watch the road. Do not read, take notes, or look up information on phones or other electronic devices.

► Designate a front seat passenger to handle potential distractions.

► Become familiar with vehicle features before driving, such as programming favorite radio stations and adjusting climate control and seat settings.
