Injured by a Distracted Driver in Port St. Lucie?
Fight for Compensation with Crary Buchanan
There are three categories that distracted drivers fall into: visually distracted, cognitively distracted, or manually distracted. When a driver looks away from the road, this is considered to be a distraction in a visual sense. Cognitive distractions occur when a driver begin to daydream, or focus mentally on something other than driving. Finally, manual distractions are when a driver decides to take his or her hands off of the steering wheel while driving.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the most common ways drivers can be distracted are by:
- Cell phone use
- Reaching for an object
- Applying makeup
Obviously, the possibilities of becoming distracted while driving are endless. The reason why cell phone use is the most dangerous form of distracted driving is because it takes your eyes, hands, and mind off of the road. Of all distracted driving accidents, teenagers and new drivers are at the highest risk.

In 2009, teenagers were the cause of 16%of fatal driving accidents caused by distraction. Virginia Tech conducted a study which produced this shocking analogy: sending or receiving one text message while driving takes eyes off of the road for almost 5 seconds which is equivalent to driving the entire length of a football field at 55mph while blindfolded.
