Lawyer in Saltdean


When using the roads, it is important to stay alert at all times. This means that you have to avoid a wide range of distractions – events or objects that prevent you from operating your car safely.

Types of driver distractions

There are two main types of driver distractions:

Physical distractions

Physical distractions include actions you may perform as a driver, actions your passengers may perform and distractions outside of your vehicle. They divert your attention away from road, posing a risk to your safety. Common physical distractions include:

  • Roadside events, such as road works and accident scenes
  • Personal grooming activities
  • Eating and drinking
  • Flying insects
  • Mobile phones
  • Satellite navigation devices
  • Radios and CD players
  • Passengers

Psychological distractions

Psychological distractions may cause you to become less attentive towards hazards on the road. They may also reduce your tolerance of other drivers. Common psychological distractions include strong emotions, such as anger and grief, and tiredness.

Avoiding distractions

To avoid distractions, you must:

  • Stay focused at all times
  • Refrain from reading maps or newspapers whilst driving
  • Conduct personal grooming activities before taking to the roads or after reaching your destination
  • Remind passengers of your need to avoid distractions
  • Ensure that children are properly restrained before you take to the roads
  • Provide children with activities that will enable them to occupy themselves while you are driving
  • Refrain from eating and drinking while driving
  • Avoid using mobile phones when driving
