  • According to the NHTSA, distraction is anything that diverts a driver’s attention from driving the vehicle and responding to events.

  • Taking your eyes off the road (visual distraction), taking your mind off the road (cognitive distraction), or taking your hands off the wheel (manual distraction) – all fall under the umbrella of distracted driving.

  • Drivers who are distracted have slower response and reaction times and a more difficult time staying in their lane.

  • 10% of fatal crashes have distracted driving as a cause.


What is Distracted Driving:

Using your cell phone while driving can be very dangerous. It is illegal in Pennsylvania to use your cell phone while driving to send texts, emails, or messages of any kind.

What a Distracted Driver Means For You:

A distracted driver is a negligent driver. When using a cell phone, the driver violates his/her duty of care to other drivers. A distracted driver poses a safety risk for everyone else and when it results in an wreck, crash, or injury – the driver becomes liable for the damages caused.

Trooper Adam Reed, spokesman with the Pennsylvania State Police, said the behavior can be deadly. A driver going 55 mph who looks down at his or her phone for six seconds has traveled more than the length of a football field, blindfolded.
