What is Distracted Driving?

Distracted Driving is when driving while doing another activity that takes your attention away from driving. This distraction can be visual, manual or cognitive. Distracted Driving activities include things like cell phone use, eating, applying make-up or mind wandering. Texting and driving is considered the most serious because it combines all three types of distraction.
