Distracted Driving is a Primary Focus of Traffic Safety
“If only I had turned my phone off.” No Regrets When You DRIVE WITH CARE and STOP Distracted Driving
When motorists divert their attention away from the task of driving to focus on another activity, they become a danger on the road. Distracting tasks can affect drivers in different ways. The three types are: manual, visual and cognitive. Florida crash reports allow officers to report driver distraction in the following categories: distracted by electronic communication devices, other electronic devices, other distraction inside the vehicle, external distraction, texting or general inattentiveness.
Prevent serious regrets by stopping cell phone usage when driving. No texting or checking emails. Do not go on any of your social media or other apps. Eliminating distractions means to stop using all electronic devices not related to driving your vehicle, reducing the noise level, no eating or drinking while driving, stop all other activities and focus on road.
