LawCall - Distracted Driving

How many times have you passed another driver only to notice that he’s not even looking at the road, but appears to be looking at his cell phone? It’s a scary thing.

Texting takes your eyes off the road for an average of four-point-six seconds. That’s like driving the length of a football field, blindfolded!

Texting is the most dangerous of all types of distracted driving, but talking on your cell phone is also dangerous. Bottom line: distracted driving kills, and it includes anything that takes your mind, eyes or focus off of the task of driving.

There are three main types of distracted driving: Manual – taking your hands off the wheel; Visual – taking your eyes off the road; and Cognitive – not paying attention to your driving. All three can result in deadly consequences.
