Common Elements in Distracted Driving Cases
Driving a car is not only a privilege, it is also a huge responsibility. If the driver does not respect the danger their moving vehicle creates to those around it and allows themselves to become distracted, they could cause a serious traffic collision at any moment, such as rear-end collisions that can escalate into multi-vehicle pileups. The greatest, most-defensive of drivers on the roads may be completely unable to predict and avoid a distracted driver’s vehicle as it blows through red lights or swerves into adjacent lanes.
There are three forms of distraction that may affect a driver:
- Mental: Thinking about something other than driving carefully.
- Manual: Placing hands off the steering wheel for more than a second.
- Visual: Looking at anything that is not the road and mirrors of the car.
