The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic on America's roadways. This road danger is defined by any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety. Because text messaging requires visual, manual, and cognitive attention from the driver, it is by far the most severe distraction. The best way to end distracted driving is to educate all drivers, young and old, about its danger. A few examples of distractions include:
- Eating and drinking
- Reading, including maps
- Watching a video
- Using a navigation system
- Using a cell phone or smartphone
- Talking to passengers
- Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3
