Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is considered operating a vehicle while performing one or more activities, diverting driver’s attention away from the road. The three main types of distractions include manual distractions, visual distractions, and cognitive distractions. So if your hands are off the steering wheel, your eyes are away from the road, or your mind is not focused on the primary task of operating a vehicle, distracted driving can increase your chances of being involved in a collision.
The following are common distractions:
- Talking or texting on a cellphone
- Having a conversation with passengers
- Eating or drinking
- Spacing out
- Looking at the navigation system or GPS constantly
