There are three main types of distraction:

         Visual -- taking your eyes off the road

         Manual -- taking your hands off the wheel

         Cognitive -- taking your mind off what you're doing

Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in while operating a motor vehicle. Such activities have the potential to distract the person from the primary task of driving and increase the risk of crashing.
