There are three main types of distraction:

  • Visual — taking your eyes off the road
  • Manual — taking your hands of the wheel

  • Cognitive — taking your mind off what you’re doing

Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in while operating a motor vehicle. Such activities have the potential to distract the person from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing.
