Types of Distracted Driving

Contrary to popular belief, distracted driving is not limited to just cell phone use. Any behavior that takes a driver’s attention away from the road can be classified as distracted driving.

  • The most common types of distraction are listed below:
  • Adjusting the radio or other car settings
  • Applying makeup
  • Eating or drinking
  • Reaching for an object in the vehicle
  • Reading a map
  • Talking or texting on a cell phone
  • Talking to passengers in the vehicle

If another driver is caught engaging in any of these behaviors, and a collision results, you will likely have cause for a distracted driving case. Do not wait to align yourself with a member of our team to learn more about next steps and your rights at this time.
