The notion of distracted driving can encompass several different actions, including:
- Cellphone use
- Talking to passengers
- Personal grooming
- Changing CDs or radio stations
- Using a navigation system
Even drivers who feel perfectly confident in their ability to safely drive while talking on the phone can ultimately cause a dangerous situation. According to a study recently published by the University of Utah, using a cellphone while driving delays the driver's reactions as much as having a blood alcohol content of .08. The study did not state a significant difference between using a hand-held and hands-free device.
