Distracted Driving Accidents Can Ruin Lives
We have all been there before; you’re stopped at a traffic light and the person next to you is entrenched in their cell phone. The light changes, and horns begin to honk because they were not paying attention. While this seems minimal, this type of behavior can have life-changing effects. According to the CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, upwards of 1,600 people are injured in a distracted driving accident every day. From people eating while they are driving to checking their cellphones, one small misstep behind the wheel can cost someone their life.
There Are Three Main Types of Driver Distraction:
Visual distractions happen when a driver takes their eyes off the road. This can happen when someone checks their phone or looks for a rogue CD. Manual distractions happen when a driver takes their hands off the wheel for any reason. Cognitive distractions occur when a driver’s mind is preoccupied with something other than driving. In some cases, more than one of these three types of distractions can happen at the same time.
The Most Common Forms of Distracted Driving:
- Talking on the phone
- Applying makeup
- Talking to a passenger
- Using a GPS device
- Adjusting the radio
- Looking at scenery
- Listening to audiobooks or podcasts
