What is distracted driving?

When it comes to operating a motor vehicle, any activity that keeps you from driving safely is a distraction. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) breaks recognizes three primary distraction:

  • Visual Distractions
  • Physical Distractions
  • Cognitive Distractions

Some activities, such as talking on the phone, fall into two categories. Phone conversations, for example, can remove one hand from the steering wheel and keep your mind away from the road. This means that using a handheld phone while driving is a physical and cognitive distraction.

Texting While Driving

Texting behind the wheel is dangerous. It’s no secret. But many drivers – especially teens – continue to use their cellphones while driving. Unfortunately, sending and reading text messages while driving can lead to serious, even fatal, auto accidents.
