Common Causes of Distracted Driving
While texting and driving are certainly the top reasons for distracted driving accidents, below are other common causes:
Eating or drinking
Talking on the phone
Adjusting controls on the A/C or radio
Using smartphone apps for GPS, music, or other reasons
Talking with passengers
Grooming or putting on makeup
Safe driving requires you to look for potential dangers in front of you, keep your mind focused on the road, and keep your hands on the steering wheel. Distracted driving involves any activity that affects one of these three functions. Texting while driving affects all three of these functions, which is why it is considered a particularly dangerous form of distracted driving.
Drivers have a legal duty to take reasonable measures to ensure the safety of everyone on the road. When a person is engaged in an activity that removes their hands, eyes, or mind from driving, he or she may be found negligent and liable for any damages that might result. In many cases, a driver claims they were looking away for only a few seconds. However, deadly accidents can occur within this timeframe.
