What are the causes of distracted driving accidents?
Distracted driving is any activity that takes away from a person's ability to concentrate on the road before them. Common behaviors include:
- Texting and driving
- Grooming or shaving
- Applying makeup
- Using a GPS
- Texting or talking on the phone
- Talking to other passengers in the car
- Adjusting stereos or entertainment systems
Any task that interferes with a driver's ability to concentrate fully on the road and cars around them constitutes distraction. Taking your eyes off the road for any reason for a mere five seconds while traveling at 55mph is equivalent to traveling the length of an entire football field blindfolded. It's no wonder that distracted drivers cause thousands of accidents every year.
