What Constitutes Distracted Driving?
When you think of a distracted driver, you probably imagine someone who
is talking on the phone while driving, or possibly even texting and driving.
While these are certainly common examples of distractions that lead to
hazardous accidents, they are not the only way a driver can become preoccupied.
Any action or any item that causes one or more of the following types
of disruption can be considered a distraction:
• Manual: Removing your hands from the wheel, or gearshift and clutch in manual cars
• Visual: Taking your eyes off the road for more than a second
• Mental: Thinking about something other than the current task
Using a cell phone while driving is the source of so many car accidents
every year because it involves all three forms of driver distraction.
Your hands are on the phone, your eyes are looking at what you are texting,
and your mind is thinking about what you want to say. If there is something
that needs to be communicated right away, pull over when it is safe to do so.
