When you get in your car to drive, you may not realize that selecting the radio channel while driving is considered distracted driving. Most people associate distracted driving with texting and driving; however, there are other forms of distracted driving that contribute to crashes.

While the most common form of distracted driving is texting at the wheel, other dangerous distracted driving behaviors include eating and drinking, applying makeup, grooming, paying attention to children, and talking on the phone—even with a hands-free device. Anytime a driver is not 100% focused on the road and driving, he or she is participating in distracted driving. Sadly, this negligence leads to thousands of car accidents every year.
