Forms of Distracted Driving

A driver distraction is not just something as simple as looking away from the road for a second. Instead, driver distractions come in many different forms that cause a variety of serious safety issues.

Commonplace driver distractions include:

  • Using a smartphone
  • Adjusting the radio
  • Talking with passengers
  • Reading a billboard
  • Eating or drinking
  • Self-grooming

Dangers of Texting Behind the Wheel

Picking up a smartphone while driving might be the most dangerous of all types of driver distractions. There is just no way that a driver can responsibly control their vehicle while also using their smartphone, and this is not just speculation. Research from safety groups like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Safety Council (NSC) has shown that texting-and-driving causes the driver to engage in three distinct types of distraction simultaneously, creating one terrible distraction.

Texting-and-driving involves these three distraction types:

  • Manual: A manual distraction takes the driver’s hands off the steering wheel, such as picking up a smartphone.
  • Visual: A visual distraction takes the driver’s eyes off the road, such as looking at a text message.
  • Cognitive: A cognitive distraction takes the driver’s mind off the task of safe driving, such as thinking about a text that was just read.

Cognitive distractions have been shown to linger, too. When a driver’s mind is distracted by a text message, for example, they will typically think about that text for at least 30 seconds. All the while, they won’t be paying attention to the road around them.

Proving the Other Driver was Distracted

Knowing that the other driver was distracted when they hit you is not the same as being able to prove that they were. The other driver will deny that they were distracted in most cases because they know it is wrong and dangerous to drive while not paying attention. You have to be ready to challenge their objections with strong arguments and good evidence.

Our attorneys know how to look for useful evidence to bolster your claim’s chances of success. In some cases, eyewitness testimonies help establish that the other driver was distracted. Maybe there is dashcam footage that shows the other driver was eating while driving? Or could it be possible to retrieve a copy of the driver’s smartphone usage data that shows it was being used when the crash occurred? There are many opportunities we can explore to do the most for your case.
