Pursuing Justice For Accident Victims In Indiana

3 examples of driving distractions to avoid

Each year, countless people suffer serious and even fatal injuries after motor vehicle accidents caused by distracted motorists. Despite knowing the risks and hearing about the dangers, many people believe they can get away with it and continue to use their cellphones while behind the wheel.

Distractions lead to more driver error and reckless driving behavior that puts everyone at risk of car accidents, critical injuries and death. Drivers should avoid the following examples of distractions.

Eating and drinking 

Many commuters do not have a lot of time to get to their job or to pick the kids up from school, sit down and eat. So, they decide to take their meal with them and eat it as they drive. However, this takes their attention away from where it should be.


Hitting snooze too many times results in very little time to get ready for work, but arriving late to work again may not be an option. Brushing hair, putting on makeup or tying a tie while maneuvering through traffic may seem to some like a way to make it on time and look presentable for work. However, such attempted multitasking creates major accident dangers.

Texting and calling

The cellphone is one item that many people are attached to around-the-clock. A friend or work colleague calls or texts while a driver is on the way to work. Instead of waiting until reaching the parking lot or somewhere else out of traffic, he or she picks up the cellphone, looks through the messages and replies. Such decisions can lead to catastrophe out on the roads.

To some drivers, the time behind the wheel may feel like a wasted opportunity to multitask and get things done that otherwise would be neglected. It may seem convenient to take care of things instead of focusing on traffic, but all it takes is one second to change lives irrevocably. Finding ways to reorganize responsibilities and isolating vehicle time strictly for driving is the only surefire way to prevent distracted driving accidents.

Unfortunately, there are plenty of drivers out there who fail to resist the temptation of driving distractions. If you suffer an injury-causing accident because of such a driver, understanding your avenues for legal recourse can be important.
