Understanding Distracted Driving and Its Impact

Driving requires a person’s full attention in order to be performed safely. While the term “distracted driving” leads many to instantly think of texting while driving, it encompasses a much wider range of negligent activities that a person may engage in behind the wheel. Any activity that takes a driver’s attention off the road is considered a form of distracted driving.

Distracted driving can take three different forms:

  • Visual: Activities that require a driver to take their eyes off the road such as reading a book or looking at one’s cell phone are examples of visual distractions.
  • Manual: Manual distractions involve a driver removing their hands from the wheel. These may involve eating, drinking, texting, or attempting to hold a loose pet.
  • Cognitive: Just about every type of distraction requires a driver to take their mind off the tasks of driving. Talking with passengers, reading, eating, or any other activity will cause a person’s mind to focus on that activity and drift away from the road, reducing their situational awareness.

Statistics and Risks of Distracted Driving in Maryland

According to data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the United States Department of Transportation, more than 3,100 people were killed, and 431,000 people were injured in car accidents involving distracted drivers in 2014 alone.

Secondary activities such as texting, grooming oneself, reading, talking on the phone, or playing with a radio can skyrocket a driver’s risk of being involved in a collision, putting nearby drivers and pedestrians at risk of serious injury.

      "I highly recommend you to anyone"
      Dear Mr. Skipper: Please accept the acknowledgement of my appreciation for the imaginative, creative and comprehensive defense you built to represent me in my long and stressful legal counter-suit against my condominium association. I found you to be professional, dedicated and extremely informative on all Home Owners Association (HOA) and Condominium Association Laws. You formulated an excellent strategy by documenting all non-compliant issues throughout the condominium complex concerning the case and personally took pictures of each of the 240 front doors in order to prove the validity of my case. This photo album of these doors was so well put together, it made it easy for the opposing attorneys and the judges to see and understand precisely what we were talking about and where each door was located. Your continued energy and support in pursuit of this case has been essential in keeping me informed at all stages of the case. Your professionalism is truly appreciated. I highly recommend you to anyone needing legal services. Not only do you provide an excellent HOA defense, but you also have a law firm with a diverse skill set that can address other type of legal needs. My experience with your law firm has been very positive, and I believe that you would represent other clients in the same professional and dedicated manner that you have done for me. Thank you.
