The Dangers of Distracted Driving – What to Know


How do you define distracted driving?

Distracted driving is any activity that takes your attention off the road. Whether you have taken your eyes off the oncoming traffic or your hands off the steering wheel, all types of distraction increase your chances of wrecks, injury and death.


Three types of distractions

Traffic safety experts classify distractions into three main types, visual, manual and cognitive.

  • Visual distractions are those that cause you to take your eyes off the road and oncoming traffic.
  • Manual distractions are those that cause you to take your hands off the steering wheel.
  • Cognitive distractions are thoughts that divert your mind away from the task of driving.

The smartphone culprit

Unfortunately, those amazing smartphones that virtually all of us have contribute to thousands of accidents and deaths on our roadways yearly. According to a recent study at the University of Utah, smartphone users are as impaired as drivers with a legal blood-alcohol limit of 0.08%.
