April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

April is Distracted Driving Awarenes Month in Florida. The website has a full report on distracted driving and what you can do to operate your motor vehicle more safely. Categories of distracted driving are listed on the website as visual, manual and cognitive.

A visual distraction is one that requires that you physically take your eyes off of focusing on the road ahead of you. Examples of physical distractions are crying babies and misbehaved children, animals in the car, and reading text messages on your smart phone.

A manual distraction is one that requires that you actually take your hands off of the steering wheel of the motor vehicle that you are driving. An example of a manual distraction would be picking up your smart phone to read, or actually texting while driving. Another common manual distraction is reaching for an object that may have fallen into the back seat or the passenger’s floor area. Eating and smoking while driving is yet another example of a manual distraction.

The third category of driver distraction is a cognitive distraction. A cognitive distraction is anything that takes your mind off of fully concentrating on the task of driving. Talking and horsing around with passengers, talking on your cell phone, and even listening to music on the radio can cause you to become distracted and increase your reaction time in the case you are required to suddenly break or swerve.

The Florida DMV provides statistics that can shed light on the magnitude of car accidents in Broward County. The Florida Highway Patrol has the duty of reporting automobile accidents throughout the state.

Distracted driving car accidents in Broward County are a serious problem and if you or a loved one has been injured or killed you need to consult an experienced Broward County distracted driving car accident attorney like the ones at The Maus Law Firm.
