You got injured from someone texting or on their cell phone.

The Driver Rehab team tries to transform the world’s worst drivers into world-class—or at least decent—drivers. In this episode, hosted by YouTube funny-man Ed Bassmaster, our team tries teach this distracted driver how to focus on the road and become a safer driver.

What Is Distracted Driving?

Distracted using is any activity that diverts interest from riding, including talking or texting for your phone, consuming and drinking, talking to human beings to your vehicle, fidgeting with the stereo, enjoyment or navigation system—whatever that takes your interest far from the challenge of secure riding.

Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a textual content takes your eyes off the street for 5 seconds. At fifty five mph, it really is like using the period of an entire football field with your eyes closed.

You can not power safely except the mission of using has your full interest. Any non-riding interest you have interaction in is a capacity distraction and increases your threat of crashing.
