What is considered distracted driving?

Distracted driving occurs whenever a driver behind the wheel engages in an activity that diminishes their capacity to safely operate their vehicle. Distracted driving has always existed, but with the rise of smartphones and mobile devices, it has become increasingly common and dangerous.

Common examples of distracted driving include:

  • Texting
  • Talking on the phone (especially if not hands-free)
  • Adjusting radio (or anything in your center console)
  • Talking with other passengers
  • Reaching into the back seat (or under the front seats)
  • Dropping items (such as food or drink)

Essentially, anything that takes a driver's eyes off the road or hands off the wheel can be considered distracted driving. When these things happen and an injury occurs, a driver could be found negligent and accountable for any damages. At the Law Offices of Robert Vaage, we have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of accident victims and are ready to assess the circumstances of your car accident today.
