While most people believe distracted driving only refers to cell phone usage while driving, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Distracted driving takes on many forms and can be seen throughout the roads and freeways in California. Eating food while driving, putting makeup on while driving, drinking coffee or even playing with the stereo takes your eyes off the road for a few seconds and could be fatal.
Most people assume taking your eyesight off the road and multi-tasking for a few seconds is okay but simple physics is at work, which factors in speed, the weight of the vehicle and the distance traveled. Thus, every single second matters and when you look at such situations as a matter of life or death you begin to appreciate the importance of focused and attentive driving. An extra sip of coffee or an extra bite of food is not worth your life or placing others in harms way.
