What is Distracted Driving?
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.
