What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted driving occurs anytime that you don’t have your full attention on the road ahead of you. This is not just texting-and-driving, which is illegal in the state of Virginia, but any action or reaction that distracts you from driving properly and with your full attention.

Distracted driving includes any of the following:

  • Texting while driving
  • The use of a cell phone for speech, even hands-free
  • Grooming
  • Eating
  • Drinking
  • Checking the GPS
  • Changing music
  • Speaking to/messing around with anyone else in the vehicle
  • Being distracted by small children in the back seat of the vehicle
  • Drowsy driving

While it may be easy to believe that distracted driving can’t occur by simply having a conversation over the phone, even if it’s a hands-free phone system, the statistics don’t lie. Multiple studies compiled by EndDD have shown that speaking on your hand-held phone versus speaking on a hands-free device offers no difference in terms of the distraction your brain is suffering.

Be a Good Role Model

According to a study presented by EndDD, teens who witness their parents driving distracted are twice as more likely to drive distracted as well. EndDD reminds all parents to remember to “practice what you preach” and ensure that you’re showing your teenager good driving habits.
