What is Distracted Driving?
Any action that prohibits a motorist from driving safely is a distraction.
There are three classifications of distractions: visual distractions,
physical distractions, and cognitive distractions. Visual distractions
take the driver’s eyes off the road. Physical distractions busy
the driver’s hands when they should be steering the vehicle. Finally,
cognitive distractions cause the driver’s mind to wander from the
task or driving.
The reason why texting while driving is one of the most dangerous behind-the-wheel
distractions is because a person who is texting and driving is engaging
with all three forms of distraction. The driver is visually distracted
because he/she is not looking at the road, physically distracted because
he/she is unable to have both hands on the wheel while texting, and cognitively
distracted because his/her mind is elsewhere.
