Providing Distracted Driving Lawyer Services in Sacramento, Roseville, Rocklin, Lincoln, Granite Bay, Folsom and throughout California
According to the Centers for Disease and Control Protection, each day in the United States, approximately 9 people are killed and more than 1,000 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver. Three main types of distractions are responsible for distracted driving accidents.
- Visual: Taking your eyes off the road;
- Manual: Taking your hands off the wheel; and
- Cognitive: Taking your mind off of driving.
Texting, talking on your cell phone, using your GPS, and eating while driving is just a few examples of distracted driving. However, the reality is that anything that takes your attention away from driving is a dangerous distraction. Not giving full and undivided attention to the task of driving can endanger the driver and others.
Other less obvious examples of distracted driving include:
- Talking to a passenger
- Tuning a car radio
- Reaching for a moving object inside the vehicle.
- Looking at an object or event outside of the vehicle.
- Applying makeup
