What is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving comprises any activities that draw a driver's attention away from where it should be - operating their vehicle and ensuring everyone's safety. This includes using one’s phone, snacking while behind the wheel, chatting up passengers or even engaging with stereo systems; in essence, anything preoccupying you other than keeping our roads safe!
Examples of common driver distractions include:
- Texting or emailing
- Eating and drinking
- Staring at GPS devices
- Applying makeup
- Reaching for fallen objects
- Voice-activated infotainment systems
Texting & Driving Is Illegal in Texas
Among the most common and dangerous forms of driver distraction is texting while driving. Texting is distracting in a number of ways. Cognitively, texting takes your mind off the road. Texting is also visual and manual distraction, drawing the eyes away from the road and the hands away from the task of safe steering. Together, these distractions make a crash up to 23 times more likely. This behavior is a big problem among teenage drivers, but any driver with a cell phone is susceptible to an accident when they choose to ignore the law.
