April is National Distracted Driving month. Hundreds of people are injured, and eight people die every day as a result of distracted driving. Do you face distractions that take your attention away from the road?
Visual distraction: Your eyes are not on the road- texting and driving, reading directions from a GPS, or observing passengers in other vehicles or in your own Manual distraction: One or both hands are taken off the wheel- eating or drinking, smoking, putting on makeup, scrolling through an app on your phone, adjusting the radio station or air settings
Cognitive distraction: Your mind is not focused on driving- listening to an audiobook, talking or having an argument on the phone, or feeling strong emotions like being angry or anxious.
