Avoiding Hazardous Driving Distractions

Whether or not we are consciously aware of the fact, the decision to travel on the roadway requires a substantial degree of trust be placed in the other motorists on the highway. Accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries or death and will almost certainly result in damage to your automobile that may require costly repairs. Logically, it would seem that drivers would turn their full energy to the task of operating a vehicle safely so that accidents might be avoided and prevented, but distracted driving is a new and evolving roadway risk that seems to be here to stay.

If you have been hurt in a collision caused by a distracted driver, then it may be appropriate to consider filing a legal action against the parties responsible for your injury.

Recognizing Driver Distractions

For as long as there have been passenger cars and trucks, there has been the potential for drivers to become distracted. Daydreaming and speaking to a passenger both create the threat of becoming involved in an otherwise avoidable car crash. But as people are spending more time in cars, new features have been introduced to make the experience more pleasant or convenient. Moreover, technology has changed as well, and the result is that there are evermore possible distractions for drivers, including:

  • Conversation with passengers
  • Using a cellular phone
  • Text messaging
  • Operating the radio, CD player, climate control, or other on-console devices
  • Eating and drinking while driving
  • Applying makeup
