It’s no secret to Houston auto injury accident lawyers that teens are among the biggest group at risk for being distracted while driving. Before letting your teenager hit the highways, review this list of the most dangerous driving distractions.
1. Cell phones, navigation systems and other communications devices
2. Adjusting radio system
3. Other vehicle occupants
5. Adjusting vehicle controls (heat or air conditioning, mirror position, seat position, etc.)
8. Non-contained pets
9. Reaching for objects in vehicle
10. Passing vehicle accident scene or road construction
While young drivers are particularly susceptible to the items on this list, drivers of all ages should avoid such distractions while behind the wheel for their own safety, the safety of their passengers and the safety of other drivers.
