4 ways you can spot a distracted driver

Even with cities and states across the country passing ordinances and laws about cellphone use and driving, it seems that every day there is a story in the news about a car accident due to distracted driving. The reality is that texting and talking are not the only causes of distracted driving. Any kind of multitasking that goes on behind the wheel can cause a driver to be distracted. Even in the second it takes to adjust the thermostat settings, a tragic accident can occur.

Researchers say texting keeps a protective "sixth sense" from working

You see at least one every day on your daily commute to and from work: a driver who is multitasking while behind the wheel.

As you get out of the car, wincing in pain, you notice that the driver of the smoking vehicle behind you is already posting a picture to Instagram.

3 most common types of distracted driving

You drove home after a long day at work thinking nothing of the commute. You had only a few miles to go when a driver came seemingly out of nowhere and collided with you. Just before the car accident, you noticed the driver was turned away, seeming to look at something on the seat instead of the road ahead. That distracted action was a choice, and it's one that has now left you with injuries.

3 Things You May Not Know About Distracted Driving

Pokemon Go recently took the world by storm, and now people are seeing a Caterpie to the left, a Weedle straight ahead and a Pichachu lurking somewhere to the right. Which to capture first? For a driver, the time it takes to make that decision and click on the critter may mean a car accident or death.

Cell phones and driving: riskier than people think

In today's world, it seems that everyone is online and connected through their smart-phones and similar devices. Of course everyone knows - at least in theory - that it is dangerous and perhaps even illegal to text while driving, but very few really understand the extent of the risks involved.
