41. Inattentiveness

For your safety and the safety of others, you should give driving your full attention. If you are distracted by psychological or situational factors, even for just a split second, you will not be able to react to hazards as quickly and it could result in a serious accident.

Distractions that can lead to accidents include:

  • boisterous or inappropriate behavior by your passengers
  • peer pressure to drive too fast or otherwise show off
  • the radio, audio players, and cell phones
  • animals in the car
  • small children in the car
  • grooming while driving
  • reading while driving
  • emotional instability
  • thinking about something other than driving while behind the wheel
  • talking or texting on a cell phone (see more on the next page)

  • You should leave an extra cushion of space around your vehicle for persons who are likely to be distracted. Some examples include:

  • delivery persons
  • construction workers
  • drivers talking on cell phones, to passengers, or to children
  • tourists (particularly at complicated intersections)
  • drivers who slow for what seems to be no apparent reason
  • drivers looking for a house number
  • drivers or pedestrians who appear to be intoxicated
  • drivers looking at maps
