Distractions and Driving Dangers
With each passing year, carmakers and other purveyors of technology come up with new ways to make the driving experience more luxurious. Unfortunately, this often involves the creation of one more source of distraction that is likely to turn a motorist’s attention away from the safe operation of his or her motor vehicle. Recent studies have shown that some of these activities can in fact pose a greater threat to roadway safety than much more frequently and vigorously maligned behaviors such as driving under the influence of alcohol or another controlled substance.

Common Driving Distractions
Part of the trouble is that the frequency with which people drive leads to the misguided perception that operating a motor vehicle is not dangerous. When traveling at posted speeds on surface streets or the highway, however, any collision has the potential to result in serious injury to one’s self or to any person or people struck. Typical driving distractions include:
- Text messaging while driving
- Talking on a cellular phone
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Applying make-up while driving
- Turning to speak with passengers
- Operating console-based musical devices and climate control systems
