Module 1: 1.3.5 Factors that Lead to RTCs
1.3.5 Distracted driving
Many distractions disrupt the driving process, which then leads to crashes. Some examples of these distractions are texting while driving, speaking, and fatigue. According to WHO, those drivers who use mobile phones while driving have four times higher chances of getting crashed. If you use a mobile phone while driving, it will reduce your reaction time, you will find it challenging to stay in lane, and you will be unable to follow any correct procedures. Some other distractions are getting involved in technology or finding objects.
