What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving is the act of engaging in any activity other than driving that may cause a person to look away from the road ahead of them, take their hands off the wheel or think about anything other than operating their vehicle. Some of the most common activities that lead to distracted driving include:

  • Texting and phone calls
  • Using Snapchat, TikTok or other apps while driving
  • Eating, drinking or smoking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Changing the radio or AC
  • Looking at signs
  • Daydreaming
  • Adjusting seats or mirrors
  • Rubbernecking

Many drivers do not realize just how dangerous these activities are, but that makes them no less dangerous. When a driver is distracted, they have lower reaction speed and less time to avoid obstacles in the road or respond to the movements of other vehicles.
