Distracted driving is frequently cited as one of the leading causes of automobile collisions, primarily due to driver behaviors which take the operator’s attention away from driving the vehicle. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) cited in the 2020-year that distracted driving claimed 3,142 lives. Distracted driving can come in several different forms which include, texting/cellphone use, eating and drinking, radio and navigation adjustment, and more.
