Getting behind the wheel is something most of us do every day.

Driving from point A to point B can become so routine that we forget we're in control of a giant, complicated machine — and that one mistake or distraction could be life-changing.

On average, 10 people are killed and 424 more are injured in collisions on Canada's roads every day.

Those numbers have been going down over the past decade, but we can do better.

So this week, Now or Never hosts Ify Chiwetelu and Trevor Dineen are putting out the call for drivers to be more mindful behind the wheel.
