You’re cruising along the freeway at 60 mph and you can’t stand that stupid song on the radio another second. The A/C is too high. Your kid is throwing crumbs at the baby. Your phone rings.
Any of these things can distract you while you’re driving. You think you need to look away from the road for just a quick second, and bam. It’s like you’ve just gone a block and half while staring at the clouds.
When we think of distracted driving, the first thing that comes to mind is a teen with a cell phone sending just that one little text, but anything that takes your eyes and your mind off the road is a distraction, and it’s super dangerous.
