What is Distracted Driving?
Distracted driving is the result of numerous car accidents that occur on a daily basis in the five boroughs. Distracted driving can occur when any action by a driver shifts their attention from the road to any other object or point of focus. One of the primary causes of distracted driving is cell phone usage. When a driver makes the choice to look at their phone to receive or send a text message, make a call, or any other action, it can cause a serious car wreck that can result in severe injuries.
Other common distracted driving actions include:
- Eating or drinking
- Navigating with a GPS
- Talking to passengers
- Adjusting the stereo
- Reading texts or maps
- Using a smart phone
