What is distracted driving?

Distracted driving refers to any activity that takes the driver's attention away from the primary task of driving.

While all distractions endanger the driver, the passengers and others who share the road, text messaging is the most alarming form of driver distraction because it requires visual, manual and cognitive attention from the driver.

Distracted driving includes:

  • Texting
  • Using a cell phone
  • Eating or drinking
  • Reading
  • Watching a video
  • Grooming
  • Using a navigation system
  • Adjusting the radio or CD player

Distracted driving has become a dangerous epidemic in America, claiming 3,328 lives in 2012 and injuring an estimated 421,000 people according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
