Perils of Driver Distraction

You may think that driving is an easy routine that once mastered is never to be forgotten. No matter how experienced and good a driver you are, you must always stay focused and pay attention to the conditions on the road as well as be aware of the other traffic participants.

In order for you to drive safely and avoid possible crashes and collisions, both your body and mind should not be distracted. When talking about driver distractions, they can be divided into three categories: a) visual, b) cognitive and c) manual. A visual distraction could be any activity that diverts your eyes off the road (for example, watching yourself in the rear-view mirror while applying makeup instead of being focused on the road). A good example of a cognitive distraction would be talking to the passenger or even listening to the radio whereas you would be considered to be manually distracted every time you take one or both of your hands off the wheel.

Hence, refrain from multitasking and stick to mono-tasking while operating a motor vehicle. Be responsible and try to resist lurking temptations like answering the cell phone or adjusting your CD player. What you should be aware of is the fact that even a simple and short activity such as texting can be perilous if you are driving as it will take your eyes off the road for less than 5 seconds. To put it another way, that would be as if you were driving across an entire football field while at the same time being blindfolded. Remember this the next time you reach for your cell phone.
