It is important to stay alert at all times – and to act with extreme caution when you climb behind the steering wheel of a vehicle. Not only do you as a driver have to avoid distractions – but your passengers have to ensure that they are not the cause of your distractions.
From an overly-loud radio to texting while driving, the distractions you can face are various in their type and severity. Driver distraction is a much-debated topic, and it is still not well understood. In plain English, this means a driver’s attention on driving is taken away by something or someone. This turns them into a really dangerous driver.
