Distracted driving is defined as driving while engaged in another activity that takes away the attention from driving. Distracted driving can also enhance the chances of a crash.
Distraction falls into 3 different categories:-
• Visual distraction – Your eyes are off the road
• Manual – Your hands are not on the wheel
• Cognitive – Your mind is not focused on the driving
Among the major causes of distraction are cell phone, eating, and texting. Technologies such as navigation systems can also contribute to distraction. Although all forms of distraction are fraught with the same degree of risk, texting in particular is more dangerous since it combines all types of distractions.
The Numbers are Alarming
Between the period 2010 and 2011 alone, nearly 7,000 lives have been lost on account of Distracted driving on the American roads and some 800,000 people injured with varying degrees of impairment, pain and suffering.
Are US Drivers More Distracted?
According to a CDC study in 2011, compared to some of the European countries and the United Kingdom itself, more US drivers admitted to having used cell phones for talking, texting, reading text messages , or e-mailing while driving. Although use of cell phones for any purpose while driving is dangerous, younger drivers below the age of 20 pose a higher degree of risk to themselves as well as other road users since the degree of distraction is significantly higher compared to elder drivers.
Law is Catching Up
Appropriate changes to existing laws or new laws are being put in place by many states to contain the causes of distracted driving. President Obama himself is concerned with this rising trend in distracted driving and federal employees are now prohibited from texting while driving with government equipment or while on government business, through an executive order. Similarly, commercial drivers are now banned by the FMCSA from texting while driving.
