Driving distractions have existed since the first cars hit the road, but the growing use of technology has created more problems. There are three main types of driving distractions:

1- Manual (taking your hands off the wheel);
2- Visual (taking your eyes off the road);
3- Cognitive (taking your mind off driving).

And these distractions endanger driver, passenger and bystander safety. The most common driving distractions are:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone or smart phone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player

Undistracted Driving Follow these tips for undistracted driving:

  • Make sure all passengers are buckled-up properly.
  • Be well-rested and in the appropriate mindset to drive. Driving while you are upset or angry can be dangerous.
  • Don’t tailgate (drive too closely behind another vehicle).
  • Allow sufficient time to reach your destination.
  • Ensure your vehicle is properly maintained.
