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
