Between everything going on in 2020 and a "new normal" this holiday season, stress is something that many of us may know too well.

Driving is part of life in California. There are 26 million drivers sharing the road with you out there. And we spend a lot of time driving. In San Diego, the average one way commute is 24 miles. In Los Angeles, the average commute time one way is 32 miles. This month At Home Nursing Care decided to focus on traffic safety for our monthly training after four staff members were involved in accidents, three at no fault of their own. (Everyone is okay, thankfully.) During the training, we learned that 94 % of collisions are caused by preventable human behaviors. The Average driver will experience a collision every 10.57 years. San Diego is 119th safest city in US Los Angeles is 195th safest city in US (Source – Allstate Insurance). But accidents are on the rise, perhaps in part due to distracted driving when drivers are texting, eating, drinking, fiddling with the radio, etc. instead of paying attention to the act of driving. Distracted driving is dangerous, claiming 3,166 lives in 2017 alone.
