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.
