Injured? Call (417) 313-1130 Today to Pursue Compensation
Driving is potentially one of the most dangerous activities a person can
participate in during their lifetime. As such, it requires a person’s
undivided attention in order to be done safely. When drivers divert their
attention away from the roads and onto a secondary task, they reduce their
situational awareness and skyrocket their chances of causing a collision,
putting the lives and safety of nearby drivers and pedestrians at risk.

Types of Distracted Driving
The term “distracted driving” refers to any activity that requires
a driver to shift their attention away from the primary task of driving.
When a person diverts their physical, visual, and cognitive attention
away from the road, they become far less likely to recognize and accommodate
for hazards on the roadway. Distracted driving is a form of driver negligence
and can legally hold a driver liable for any damages they should cause
in the event of a collision.
Common distractions while behind the wheel include:
- Talking on the phone
- Eating and drinking
- Personal grooming
- Adjusting a radio
- Using a navigation system
