We have all experienced it – motorists who seemingly take forever to notice the traffic light has changed from red to green; motorists who can’t seem to keep a consistent speed on the interstate; motorists who weave from one lane to the other and back again as if they are the only ones on the highway. These are all distracted drivers. Distractions come in many shapes and sizes – food, cell phones, radio controls, GPS screens, even makeup. Unfortunately, these distractions take attention away from the most important thing the driver is supposed to be doing – focusing on the road. And when a driver is not focused, accidents happen. Those accidents can be as minor as a fender bender, or as major as taking a life.
