♪ music playing ♪ [7x7 Experience Risks] How do you make a safe decision when you're driving? Right now, you might be making your road decisions based on efficiency.   How do you get your rider where they're going as fast as possible? Maybe you bob in and out of traffic to get them there that much faster,   or you squeal through the traffic light just in time. But when you are focused on "efficiency," then you stop looking at the road for safety, and you start getting bad ratings. Your rider doesn't want you to weave across lanes or speed through a yellow light, even if it gets them where they're going faster. Your rider wants to be safe. You only have this one trip to show them that you're a safe driver. Instead of trying to be "efficient," you need to think about the risks you are taking with the rider in your car.   For example, checking your text messages while driving is a high risk behavior. You're distracted from the road and won't have time to react. According to the Center for Disease Control, distracted driving kills approximately nine people every day in the US. That's nine people too many. We all think we're the one person who's okay to do it, but we can't risk adding to that statistic. An example of medium-risk behavior might be checking your text messages when you're at a red light.   It's still not the safest decision, but since the drivers around you are stopped as well, it's a much lower risk. The lowest risk, though, would be waiting to check your text messages until you are safely pulled over, parked out of the flow of traffic. You might be thinking, "But what if I need to check my text messages" "because my next rider is sending me information?" Consider if there's a compromise that you can use, instead of choosing a high-risk, dangerous behavior. Maybe you can use a bluetooth earpiece and have your phone set up with a text to voice option that will read your messages to you, so you don't have to take your eyes off of the road. Many apps can even use voice recognition to write a message for you, so that you don't have to look at the screen at all.
