There are many different types of driver distractions that can pose dangerous and even fatal threats to drivers on the road. Driver distractions are broken down into three types of distractions: visual distractions (taking your eyes off the road), manual distractions (taking your hands off of the steering wheel) and cognitive distractions (taking your mind off of driving). These include the following:
- Texting While Driving
- Drunk Driving (DUI)
- Talking on the Phone
- Eating While Driving
- Applying Makeup
While these appear to be the more common forms of driver distractions, other causes may include seemingly harmless activities such as talking to a passenger and singing along to the radio. Additionally, there are several types of driver distraction that seem to be obviously dangerous distractions, yet many people choose to participate in them on a daily basis. This includes watching a movie on an in-car television, surfing the web on a laptop or cell phone, reading a book and changing the song on your iPod.
