Distracted Driver Awareness
You hear a great deal about distracted driving, but what exactly is it? Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person’s attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger the driver, passenger(s) and bystander safety. Some types of distractions can be: texting or reading a text or email, using a cell phone or Smartphone, eating or drinking, using navigation system, adjusting a radio, reading, grooming, talking to passengers, and aggressive driving.
