Types of Driver Distractions
There are several types of driver distractions that the U.S. Department of Transportation has established. The three types are as follows:
- Manual Distraction: Any distraction that takes your hands off the wheel.
- Visual Distraction: A type of distraction that will take your eyes off of the road.
- Cognitive Distraction: This type of distraction takes your mind off of what you are doing (driving).
Nearly all distractions, including talking or texting on a cell phone, eating while driving, applying makeup, watching a video, using a PDA, iPod or navigation system, talking to passengers, and changing the radio, fall under one or multiple categories of driver distractions.
