Types of Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving accidents are caused by manual, visual, and cognitive distractions. A manual distraction involves a driver’s hands. Without both hands, a driver cannot fully control a vehicle.
Examples of manual distractions are:

Visual distractions cause a driver to take their eyes off of the road. Visual distractions include:
- Reading or watching content on a cellphone
- Checking appearance in the mirror
- Focusing on a passenger
- Looking at a map or GPS
A cognitive distraction takes a driver’s mind away from the road for an extended period of time. Common cognitive distractions include the following:
- Focusing on a phone call conversation
- Disciplining your children
Manual, visual, and cognitive distractions can happen simultaneously or in any combination with one another.
