What is distracted driving?
Florida is one of the states that has enacted distracted driving laws in recent years to reduce the occurrence of distracted driving accidents. There are three forms of distracted driving. Manual is taking your hands off the steering wheel. Visual is taking your eyes off of the road. Cognitive is taking your mind off of the act of driving. Although a lot of the discussion in recent years has circled around cell phone use and distracted driving, there are other ways a driver can be distracted. Talking with passengers, talking with children in the back seat, even changing a radio station: all of these can cause drivers to be distracted.
