The most dangerous distracted driving habits

One of the biggest problems facing drivers these days is that of distracted driving. Even though drivers have been driving distracted for decades, it has only gotten worse with the introduction of mobile phones and then smartphones. Here are some of the most dangerous distracted driving habits aside from using a phone while driving.

Having a pet in the car can be very distracting, especially if the pet is in the front passenger seat. A pet should always be in the back seat or as close to the rear of the vehicle as possible. If you can transport the pet in a crate, it would be even better for your safety.

Eating while driving is a big distraction for even the most experienced drivers. Dropping food, looking in a bag for a snack or spilling a hot drink can cause drivers to swerve or hit another vehicle.

Flipping through the radio stations is just as much of a distraction as using a mobile phone while driving. A driver's attention is not entirely on the road when trying to find a different station to listen to or when inserting a CD into the CD player.

Drowsy driving is a form of distracted driving. Not having enough sleep and getting behind the wheel of a vehicle is very dangerous. Drowsy driving can lead to a driver shutting his or her eyes for even a split second, which can cause a tragic accident.
