The NHTSA defines a distraction as any activity which diverts ones attention from driving. Such distractions include talking, texting, eating/drinking, talking people in your vehicle…”Texting is the most alarming distraction. Sending or reading a text takes your eyes off the road for 5 seconds. At 55 mph, that’s like driving the length of an entire football field with your eyes closed.”
