Distractions when driving are all too common and distracted drivers can cause fatal accidents. With 1752 fatalities on Britain's Roads in 2015, we look to investigate if distractions when driving are contributory factors. You might be surprised at the statistics in this article. We were shocked at how common and how dangerous distractions when driving are.
Distracted driving is usually divided into three components:
Visual – Distractions that cause drivers to take their eyes off the road.
Manual – Distractions that cause drivers to take their hands off of the wheel.
Cognitive – Distractions the cause drivers to divert their attention from the road.
Statistics show that up to 72% of drivers in the UK have admitted to multi-tasking whilst at the wheel. This dangerously high level of distracted drivers causes countless road accidents every year, often leading to serious injuries and fatalities
