The Most Common Types of Distracted Driving
Anything that takes a driver’s attention away from the road can be distracting, but some are far more common than others. These are the most frequent causes of distracted driving:
- Talking on the phone or reading and writing text messages
- Adjusting a GPS device
- Changing the station on the radio or adjusting the temperature in the vehicle
- Grooming or applying make-up
- Talking to passengers, especially if the conversation is particularly heated or engaging
- Looking away from the road
- Trying to handle pets or children
- Daydreaming or getting lost in thought
Some of these actions might not seem distracting, but any time a driver’s attention is not on the task at hand, he or she is at a higher risk of being involved in an accident. Cell phone use is particularly the most dangerous of them all, especially reading or sending text messages. While most other actions distract a driver in only one of three ways – cognitively, visually, or manually – reading or sending a text message distracts a driver in all three ways.
Although many drivers are aware of the dangers involved in texting and driving, the NHTSA estimated that 481,000 vehicles were driven by individuals who were using handheld electronic devices at any given time during the day.
