What is distracted driving other than texting?

Well, texting, first of all, is the most significant form of distracted driving. It actually is probably as bad or worse at times than drinking and driving, not that I’m encouraging drinking and driving. But texting and driving takes at least as long if not longer to react from looking down from texting until your eyes are back on the road again.

But it’s not the only form of distracted driving. Getting on the phone, just talking, adjusting your radio, getting ready while you’re going to work, eating, drinking coffee, any of these can be forms of distracted driving, all of which take away from you driving down the road.

If you’re adjusting the radio or if you are on the phone or anything of that, at least wait until you’re stopped or you’re in an area where there’s very little or no traffic.
