Distracted driving is getting more and more attention these days because of the nationwide anti-texting campaigns. However, texting while driving is just one form of distracted driving. Any actions that take your attention away from driving can lead to devastating accidents.
The three elements of focused driving include:
- Keeping your mind on the road.
- Keeping your hands on the wheel.
- Keeping your eyes on your surroundings.
Drivers have been distracted for years by eating in the car, interacting with their passengers, or even applying makeup. The unfortunate rise of the use of cell phones behind the wheel has at least drawn attention to the seriousness of maintaining focus while driving.
