Wisconsin police urge drivers to end distracted driving habits

Posted on April 7, 2016 4:57 pm under Car Accidents

Wisconsin police officers are urging drivers to pay more attention to the road while driving. More and more accidents, many fatal, are found to be caused by distracted drivers. Many believe that distracted driving only relates to cell phone and use of electronics, but according to reports by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, this is not true. Here is a list of some other unfortunately common occurrences that frequently distract drivers:

  • Trying to take care of a child in the backseat
  • Getting ready (doing hair and makeup)
  • Taking hands off the wheel when eating
  • Holding/reading maps
  • Letting your pet sit in your lap

While it’s not uncommon for drivers to find themselves guilty of one or more of these actions, it is also more likely that those engaging in these behaviors will cause a serious car accident.
