Driver distractions can be:
• Visual – taking your eyes off the road
• Manual- taking your hands of the wheel
• Cognitive – thought distractions
Although driving distractions are much more than texting or talking on a cell phone, all three distractions can be caused by a cell phone – texting or talking (visual); reading a text (manual); talking to someone on the phone (cognitive). Choosing to engage in such activity is risky, dangerous, and potentially deadly no matter how experienced a driver you are.
We know when the cell phone rings it’s tempting to answer, but driving is a skill that requires your full attention. Resisting the temptation to answer and focusing on the road will allow you to better react to the unexpected and potentially avoid an accident.
State laws have been changed to deter the use of the electronic devices while driving, but more laws are not the solution; common sense is. Keep your eyes on the road, your hands on the wheel, and your mind on your driving. At the end of the day, it is these practices that can make your drive safer.
