The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Many of us are guilty of multitasking while engaging in other activities. However, not paying attention to what is going on around you, especially when you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, can be very dangerous. In an effort to significantly reduce distracted driving accidents, the state of Idaho and the majority of states have enacted laws prohibiting drivers from texting and driving. Drivers who engage in this type of behavior can be held responsible for any injuries they cause.
Common causes of distracted driving include:
- Talking or texting on the cellphone
- Talking to passengers
- Eating or drinking
- Changing radio stations
- Spacing out
- Constantly looking at the GPS or navigation system
