What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving occurs any time you are "distracted" and not focusing on the primary task at hand - driving safely. The use of cell phones is a common distraction but keep in mind distracted driving occurs any time you take your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, and let your mind wander rather than focusing on the task at hand — driving safely.

Distracted driving is a serious problem: Nearly 1/2 a million people are injured each year as a result of car accidents due to distracted drivers.
