What is Distracted Driving in Dublin?
Many people in Ohio associated distracted driving with texting while driving, or talking on a cell phone while driving. These are indeed examples of distractions behind the wheel, but it is critical to recognize that distracted driving crashes can also happen without any kind of distracting technology. According to the NHTSA, distracted driving is a term that refers to “any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, fiddling with the stereo, entertainment or navigation system — anything that takes your attention away from the task of safe driving.”
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clarifies that there are three different kinds of distractions, and all of them can be dangerous:
- Manual distractions, which take a driver’s hands off the wheel;
- Visual distractions, which take a driver’s eyes off the road; and
- Cognitive distractions, which take a driver’s mind off the task of driving.
In some distracted driving accidents, liable motorists might only be engaged in one of these forms of distractions, while other crashes can involve two of these distractions or all three. In collisions caused by texting while driving, the motorist is often experiencing a manual, visual, and cognitive distraction since texting requires taking your hands off the wheel and your eyes off the road, and requires concentrating on the message you are reading or sending.
