Distracted driving is any activity that takes your attention away from driving, such as talking or texting on your phone, eating and drinking, talking to people in your vehicle, playing with the stereo, entertainment, or navigation system, anything that takes your attention away from the task of driving safely. Driving while distracted can bring very bad consequences. It is not only dangerous but can also be fatal.
