Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. Any distraction endangers driver, passenger, and bystander safety. Although driving distracted encompasses a variety of activities, cell phone use is among the most dangerous because the behavior involves taking a driver’s hands off the wheel (manual distraction), eyes off the road (visual distraction), and mind off driving (cognitive distraction).
