Forms of Driver Distractions

Drivers need to always pay close attention to the road around them to keep themselves and other motorists safe. Unfortunately, there are dozens if not hundreds of potential driver distractions out there. Not all drivers will be able to ignore them and stay focused.

Common driver distractions include:

  • Smartphone notifications
  • Talking with a passenger
  • Reading roadside billboards
  • Eating or drinking
  • Self-grooming like applying makeup
  • Changing the radio or music app

All distractions can fall into one or more of these four categories:

  1. Visual: A distraction that takes the driver’s eyes off the road and mirrors is a visual distraction.
  2. Manual: A distraction that takes the driver’s hands off the steering wheel is a manual distraction.
  3. Auditory: A distraction that makes it harder for the driver to hear the noises of the road is an auditory distraction.
  4. Cognitive: A distraction that makes it harder for the driver to concentrate is a cognitive distraction.

Texting & Driving is Especially Dangerous

In recent years, many distracted driving accidents have been able to be traced back to smartphone use behind the wheel. Specifically, text messaging or direct messaging while driving is extremely distracting and dangerous. But why?

Texting and driving is so dangerous because it engages three forms of driver distractions all at once: visual, manual, and cognitive. The driver must pick up the phone to read the text message, which they then think about. When thinking of a text that was just read, most drivers will continue to think about that text for up to 30 seconds, too, meaning the cognitive distraction is even worse than it initially seems.

Can You Prove the Other Driver was Distracted?

Proving that the other driver was distracted is a challenge. They will certainly deny that they were doing anything wrong because they know that any admittance of wrongdoing will put the liability on them. You cannot hope that they will admit they were on the phone.

Instead, it will take some investigating to get to the bottom of your accident. Our distracted driving accident lawyers in Glendale can help by reviewing eyewitness statements and testimonies from the other driver. We might be able to show that they were on their phone or engaging in some sort of other distraction by more than just word of mouth.

    "Going to speak to Mr. Wax was calming and informative."
    After working 4 decades at one grocery chain I became badly injured. Filing a WC claim was easy but after 4 major surgeries, one to remove 3 discs from the lumbar region, 1 disc removed from the cervical region, surgery to repair 3 torn rotator tendons, and have an electronic lumbar stimulator the bureacracy of WC insurance and the mounds of paperwork and approvals required for all tests and procedures would have stressed me out to a point of severe anxiety. Going to speak to Mr. Wax was calming and informative. His representatives who accompanied me to depositions and the courthouse was such a relief. I could not have done this myself. Thank you to the lawyers who helped me, Mireya who was my contact in the office for immediate feedback to my concerns. I highly recommend this firm for dealing with insurance companies and the SS office. Thank you
