Your phone is in your center console, you programmed your GPS before you even left your driveway, and you've already got your favorite playlist playing on your stereo. You avoid using technology while driving because you know what can happen if you are not driving with your full attention. However, there are things besides your cellphone, GPS, or ipod that can cause you to get into an accident.
Here are seven common non technology distractions you want to avoid:
- Looking at scenery or an accident
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Reading a map while driving
- Dealing with your children or pets while driving
- Grooming yourself
- Talking to passengers
- Unruly passengers
These non tech preoccupations could cause you to get into an accident by physcially, visually, or cognitavely distracting you. Anything thing that causes you to take your hands off of the wheel, your eyes off of the road, or your concentration off of driving could potentially lead to a serious injury accident.
