Definition of Distracted Driving

When driving, a person’s attention should be focused entirely on that task. Unfortunately, many try to multitask while driving. In so doing, they put their lives and the lives of any surrounding individuals in danger. Distracted driving is anything that takes a driver’s focus off of driving.

Common distractions can include:

  • Using a cell phone
  • Texting
  • Eating and drinking
  • Putting on makeup
  • Talking with passengers
  • Reading maps or other materials
  • Watching a video
  • Fiddling with the radio or stereo
  • Using a GPS or other navigation system

Many of these are tasks that can simply wait until the driver has arrived at his or her destination. When a driver attempts to cram too many activities onto the road, injuries and even fatalities can result.

The Facts About Texting & Driving

More than 2.5 million individuals in the country are involved in motor vehicle accidents every year and, 1.5 million of which involve cell phone use. In other words, over 60% of motor vehicle accidents in the country occur because of distracted drivers.

According to some studies, drivers who text and drive are 6 times more likely to be involved in a collision than those who drive drunk.
