Distracted driving is one of the most common hazards on roadways nationwide. The impact that seemingly simple actions can have often goes overlooked, and it extends far beyond just using a mobile device. Nearly every action taken behind the wheel that takes a driver’s focus away from driving can be considered a distraction.
Where this is especially concerning, however, is when non-automobiles are involved. Motorcycle riders, bicyclists, and pedestrians can fall victim to distractions or distracted drivers and suffer potentially fatal consequences.
