Hands-Free Cellphone Use: A Dangerous Distraction
There are several types of driver distraction:
- Visual – takes your eyes off the road. This can include looking for something in the vehicle, electronic devices or reading advertising along the road.
- Manual – takes your hands off the wheel. Smoking, eating and drinking in the vehicle are common manual distractions.
- Auditory – keeps you from hearing important sounds from outside the vehicle.
