Distracted driving is a major problem among people today. The kinds of things that distract people have changed over time, but they've started to grow in number. Take, for example, cellphones. Initially, they only distracted individuals through sound and talk. Today, cellphones are smarter. They cause visual, physical and cognitive distractions.
Visual, physical and cognitive distractions combined make a driver dangerous. For instance, if someone is texting, he or she is physically removing his or her hands from the wheel, looking away from the road and thinking about something other than driving. That combination can be deadly.
