Distracted driving is the engagement in another activity while driving.  Some examples of distracted driving are eating, making a phone call, sending texts, receiving texts and interacting with the radio.  A driver who is distracted could have their attention to the road impaired.  The impairment of attention can considerably increase the risk of causing a collision with a motor vehicle.
