What is Distracted Driving?

In order to operate a motor vehicle safely, drivers must always pay attention to the road. Unfortunately, distracted driving occurs all too often in a variety of forms. The main three categories of distracted driving include the following:

  • Visual distractions – when a driver takes his or her eyes off the road to pay attention to something else, such as a person talking the backseat
  • Cognitive distractions – when a driver’s thoughts or mental state are focused on something else besides driving
  • Manual distractions – taking one’s hand or hands off of the wheel to complete some other task in the car, such reaching for something in the backseat, eating, or putting on makeup
