Distracted Driving Prevention: Part 3

March 18, 2024

Over the next several months we will be featuring driving safety in the TP Brake & Muffler blogs.

This month we will continue to look at distracted driving prevention. According to the National Safety Council (NSC) website: “Multitasking is a Myth” Distracted driving occurs when drivers divert their attention from driving to another activity.”

“The human brain is not capable of performing two tasks at the same time. Instead, the brain handles tasks sequentially, switching between one task and another. Cognitive distraction occurs when a driver is concentrating on any task other than driving. NSC believes the main responsibility of people using roadways is to focus their attention on the primary task at hand, whether they are driving, walking, cycling, or being mobile in other ways. Other cognitively demanding tasks — like talking on the phone, responding to texts, using apps, programming a navigation system, or searching the internet — can be performed safely only when parked or otherwise not moving.”
