There are 3 primary types of distracted driving

When people get behind the wheels of motor vehicles, they must be prepared to follow the rules of the road at all times. Neglecting to do so can put many people in danger.

As you probably know, distracted driving remains a major problem. This is despite the many laws in place to help prevent this.

There are many things that can take your attention away from the road when behind the wheel. This includes everything from texting to eating to conversing with passengers.

Generally, there are three primary types of distracted driving. These include the following:

  • Cognitive distraction. This is when a person is not focusing on the road, but instead thinking about something else.
  • Visual distraction. When a driver is looking at something other than the road, there's a greater chance that he or she will cause a crash.
  • Manual distraction. This comes into play when a person takes one or both hands off the wheel for any reason. A common example of this is texting and driving.

If you are not thinking about the dangers of distracted driving, there is a chance that you could lose focus when you are behind the wheel. This is a mistake that could cause an accident.

In addition to the steps you're taking to remain safe, remember this: You have to be on the lookout for other drivers. These people may not be as cautious as you, meaning they are partaking in risky behavior.

If you are part of an accident with a distracted driver, move your vehicle to safety and call 911. Once you receive treatment, you'll have a better idea of what the future will bring. This will lead you to learn more about the accident, as well as your legal rights for receiving compensation.
