Distraction or non-dwelling behavior caused by the use of a cell phone, laptop, e-reader, etc. is becoming a normal part of modern life.
And while it may be helpful to be constantly connected, and in full control of your vehicle while driving, it can have devastating consequences.
Some of the effects include: reduced awareness on the road, loss of control and injury risk, poor judgment and decision making and even violent behavior.
It has been reported that close to one percent of people worldwide have red zone zone Alzheimers (red zone zzam) diagnosis and are considered “very red zone zzam” drivers.
This is due to the fact that they are extremely focused on the road and how to maneuver in front of/behind/around vehicles.
The dangers of distracted driving
Distracted driving is a growing concern in the United States. In fact, distracted driving was the eighth leading cause of car accidents in 2016.
Of the 39 vehicle crash causes that were reported as occasional drivers being cautious when behind the wheel, only 25 of them recommended not using your cell phone while driving.
This includes using a cell phone, texting, and even checking social media sites like Facebook. All of these activities can be distracting to the driver.
Plus, recent studies have shown that users of mobile devices are less attentive to traffic signs and road conditions than non-mobile device users. This can lead to more tragic crashes where drivers are most focused on what they are doing and not on traffic signs or conditions.
A car is driving quickly, and the driver is distracted. The driver is staring down at their cell phone, and has his hands on the wheel with his left hand.
The car is doing a quick drive through a mall, so there isn’t much warning that something dangerous is about to happen.
The car drives into the wall and breaks both legs. The driver was not wearing his safety belt, so he did not take any serious risks when he was driving.
The camera system in the car caught the driver looking down at his cell phone for several seconds before he snapped out of it and sat up straight.
Driving and eating
If you’re a vegetarian, you may be wondering if it’s safe to drive when you eat. Luckily, the video explains this in clear, concise language.
It tells you if it is safe to drive while eating, and what steps you must take to make it safe.
The video does not tell you if it is safe to drive while non-fooded items are present. This may be a concern for meat eaters who think that eating does not require driving as much as looking at screens does.
Unfortunately, Driving While Eating Does Still Have Its Dangers. These include being distracted by your phone or other electronic devices, not knowing how to keep your eyes on the road, and being potentially vulnerable to windshield cracks and injuries.
Driving and texting
Recent trends have been software-controlled cell phones and the ability to text while driving. As of now, only the former is allowed, but not until later in this article!
Both of these features are currently limited to high-speed traffic situations or when your phone is being monitored by a case or monitor.
But beware! Both of these features can be very tempting. You might just look forward to your break and how long you can stay focused on your text message or phone call.
Neither one of them can keep your eyes from wandering off of the road to check their messages or what’s happening with their friends and people they’re talking to.
This is a dangerous way to be driver.
Driving and smoking
Recent studies have warned people about the risks of smoking and driving at the same time. This is a dangerous combination!
Driving and smoking can lead to impaired decision making, poor decision making, and increased risk-taking. If you are a driver, keep in mind that your license is a way to get punished for violating laws.
In addition, being involved in a car accident can lead to medical conditions such as heart disease or diabetes mellitus type 2, both of which can impair your ability to drive.
Finally, working with vehicles while driving can be dangerous. When driving around town, try not to let your fingers or other body parts be close to the wheel until you are safely away from traffic and parking lots.
The dangers of auto-driving lie not only in the effects of modern technology on personality and habits, but also in the health conditions that require attention when they are present.
At the end of the film, there is a final scene where Kiefer asks Oscar to make sure he’s doing everything he can to help fix the problems in his city.
Oscar agrees to take this request seriously and makes sure to attend some community events and talks about his work. He also shares his message of safety with the community through his work, such as handing out video toe tags.
This scene was well-done and made you think about what might happen if this man didn’t show up at an event. You wonder if anyone noticed him or what he was talking about! It made you feel for him more because of it.
His message of safety was beautiful and honest, so I hope people take away from this film to keep themselves and others safe.
