What Is Distracted Driving?

There are three main types of distraction:

  • Visual — taking your eyes off the road
  • Manual — taking your hands off the wheel
  • Cognitive — taking your mind off what you’re doing

Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in that has the potential to distract him or her from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing.

While all distractions can endanger drivers’ safety, texting is the most alarming because it involves all three types of distraction.

Other distracting activities include:

  • Using a cell phone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a PDA or navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Changing the radio station, CD, or Mp3 player.

The national Safety Council reports that reported that last year alone over 1.6 million traffic accidents are caused by texting while diving. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how much driving experience you think you have, it’s never safe.

Cliff Cottam Insurance Services will be doing our part to remind drivers in Sacramento with a radio message airing August 30, 2011. Tune in to KSSU 1580 AM between 5 & 6 PM. Our message is simple—“Be Safe And Responsible."  Make sure that you are protected while driving.  Call us at (800) 807-6871 for a free auto quote today!
