Michigan State Police Video Shows Dangers Of Distracted Driving
We've all seen it, that person that is driving erratically on the highway and paying more attention to their cellphone than their driving. It drives me crazy! (And some people try to be real sneaky about it, too...like we can't see their phone or see that they're looking in their lap and not at the road.) According to the CDC, there are three main types of distractions while driving which include visual, manual and cognitive. The CDC says that texting while driving is especially dangerous because it combines all three types of distractions. Sending or reading a text message takes your eyes off the road for about 5 seconds which is long enough to cover a football field while driving at 55 mph.
In recognition of Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the Michigan State Police created a video that everyone should watch about the dangers of distracted driving.
