Distractions can take many forms – looking down at the radio affects drivers in a different way than rummaging around in the center console without looking away from the road. Safety experts have separated distractions into three different categories to better explain how drivers are affected.
The most dangerous instances of distracted driving are when the criteria for all three categories are met, like when the driver uses their phone while behind the wheel.
