Let's end Distracted Driving.

 

Drivers have been distracted for years.

We’ve always been told, “Keep your eyes on the road, scan the horizon and keep both hands on the wheel.” But with a greater amount of technology and more drivers now than ever, distracted driving instances are increasing at an alarming rate.

What is distracted driving?

When we hear about distracted driving, we immediately think texting and driving , but driving distractions come in a variety of forms. According to Distraction.gov, distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. Driving is a skill that requires your full attention!

 

 

Three classifications of distractions:

Visual distractionsAnything that takes your eyes off of the road.

Manual distractions Anything that takes your hands off of the steering wheel.

Cognitive distractions — Anything that takes your mind off of driving.
