Types Of Distractions Drivers Can Experience While Driving

A common misconception is that one can multitask while driving safely. Some of the distractions that commonly lead to accidents include:

  • Cellphones: Perhaps the most notorious of driving distractions, cellphones are responsible for a significant portion of accidents. The simple act of glancing at a phone can lead to dire consequences, causing drivers to lose focus on the road.
  • Passengers: While conversation is a natural part of driving alongside passengers, it can divert the driver’s attention from the road, increasing the risk of an accident.
  • Infotainment systems: The modern car, equipped with different infotainment systems, can be a minefield of distractions. Drivers may fiddle with the radio, adjust climate controls or interact with GPS navigation systems, taking their eyes off the road and their hands off the wheel.
  • Food and beverages: Eating or drinking demands physical engagement—reaching for an item, opening the packaging and reaching to consume. This manual distraction takes the driver’s hands off the wheel, impacting their ability to react quickly to changes in traffic conditions.

A distracted driver may cause accidents like lane wandering, where a driver drifts out of their lane, rear-end collisions, often a result of drivers not noticing slowing or stopped traffic ahead or missing stop lights or signs.
