What is Distracted Driving?

We often think of distracted driving as driving while texting, but that is far from the only dangerous behavior in which drivers engage. Distraction can include:

  • Changing a radio station, CD, or MP3 player
  • Looking at or modifying GPS equipment
  • Eating or drinking
  • Applying makeup
  • Reading billboards

Anything that takes your eyes and attention off of the road, no matter how briefly, is a form of distracted driving and places you and everyone else on the road at great risk.

The lawyers at Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South strongly encourage you to think about your own driving habits to help reduce your risk of causing a serious accident. If you, or someone you love has been injured by a distracted driver, call Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South at 800-259-1005 to schedule a free consultation today.
