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
