We’ve all been guilty of applying a little lipstick or checking for food in our teeth while driving. Pulling down the sun visor and taking a quick peek in the vanity mirror is harmless, right? Wrong. According to drivesteady.com, getting pretty in the car is one of the 7 worst distractions while driving. Some of the others are: Texting, talking on a cell phone, talking to other drivers in the car, and looking at a GPS.
Not only does SafeAuto Insurance spokesperson Norm Macdonald agree that paying attention to your vanity mirror instead of the road can be dangerous, he also has some other thoughts about this common driving distraction.

According to an article on Huffingtonpost.com, a deadly accident in Ohio took the lives of 6 teenagers this past weekend. “A speeding sport utility vehicle taken without permission and carrying eight teenagers crashed into a guardrail Sunday morning and flipped over into a swampy pond in northeast, Ohio, killing five boys and the young woman driving, the state highway patrol said.”
The two surviving boys escaped from the vehicle and ran a quarter-mile to a home to call 911. The six that were killed were ages 14-19.
The city of Warren, Ohio is now in mourning as they come to grips with this tragic accident that seems to have affected everyone in some way.
While auto insurance is supposed to help prepare for the unexpected and is always a necessity while driving, certainly, nothing could have prepared for a tragic event like this. Sometimes, it takes an event that hits close to home, such as this one does, to realize just how fragile and precious life can be. Everyone at SafeAuto Insurance sends their deepest condolences to the families of the deceased and our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Warren, Ohio.

According to an article on Mashable.com, Ferrari has launched a V12-powered hybrid supercar with a 789-horsepower gasoline and a 160-horsepower electric motor. The car reaches 62 MPH in 3 seconds. Just for a point of comparison, it takes one of the best selling cars in the US, the Toyota Corolla 8.5 seconds. So yes, this new Ferrari is a fast car.
In addition to being fast, the Ferrari also has a highly efficient motor, both at high speeds and low speeds. There will only be 499 models built and the price has not yet been announced, but if you’re driving one of these babies (or anything else for that matter), you better make sure you’re insured!
