3 Categories of Distracted Driving

Wilson & McQueen March 23, 2023

We all are aware that reckless driving is increasingly the culprit behind car accidents across the country. In Lexington, drivers are also coming to realize that distracted driving is a particularly dangerous form of reckless driving. Distracted driving can be attributed to many different behaviors, but all of these behaviors can usually be classified as one of three primary categories.

The attorneys of Wilson & McQueen, PLLC, can help drivers evaluate their own claims and decide on the best course of action to pursue compensation that may be their due after a distracted driver involves them in an accident.

3 Primary Categories

Though many individual behaviors constitute distracted driving, there are actually three main categories of distraction. These include:

  • Manual Distraction.

  • Visual Distraction.

  • Cognitive Distraction.

Manual distraction is when a driver’s hands are not at the wheel, visual distraction is when his or her eyes are not on the road, and cognitive distraction is simply when a driver’s thoughts are not on the tasks at hand. Each of these forms of distraction can be very dangerous and can quickly lead to an accident.
