Many people do not know what could be construed as distracted driving, and some do not realize just how dangerous this practice can be. The following are some of the common problems that you may see along the roads when you are driving throughout San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
It is common to see drivers making phone calls on their cell phones, even though it is against the law. They may put the phone away when they see a police car, but they are certainly distracted while they are making the call and when they are watching for the police. Texting while driving is another problem, and it is frighteningly common.
Other drivers will start reading or texting when they believe there is a slowdown in traffic, and they do not have their attention firmly on the road. The same happens when people put on makeup or have their lunch in the car while driving. All of these little distractions can cause some rather large accidents that can cause severe injuries and in some cases death.
