In a split second
could have
devastating consequences!!

There are three principal forms of driver distraction:

- when you focus your eyes away from the road. For instance, when you look at someone attractive walking on the sidewalk.
- when you move your hands from the task of controlling the vehicle, such as reaching for a bottle of water.
- when your mind wanders away from the task of driving, such as trying to remember what Falcetti told us in the lecture last Wednesday!
....Texting involves all three!!!
- Lack of impulse control
- Roadside distractions (people,
accidents, noise)
- Inexperience/ age
- Running late
- Night time driving
- Passengers
- Having phone handy/
