The 3 Areas of Distracted Driving
Distracted driving is generally broken down into the following three categorie
Visual – taking your eyes off the road.
Manual – taking your hands off the wheel.
Cognitive – taking your mind off driving.
Talking on your smart phone, playing with a navigation system, eating food from a drive through or applying a fresh coat of lip gloss can all be forms of distracted driving. However, texting while driving is the most serious form of distracted driving. It combines all three of the categories above. Visual, because you’re looking at your phone and not the road. Manual, because one or possibly both hands are off the wheel tapping out a message. Also cognitive, because as you’re composing a message and you aren’t thinking about the road ahead of you.
