What constitutes distracted driving in Iowa?

Distracted driving is a big buzzword in today's society. It is really defined as anything that takes a driver's eyes off the road, mind off the activity at hand, and hands off the steering wheel. If even one of these three activities is entered into, distracted driving has taken place.

Texting while driving is considered to be the worst distraction for drivers, as their minds are not paying attention to the road, their eyes are off the road, and their hands are not on the wheel. There are many other distractions that a driver can enter into while driving, including:

  • Texting while driving
  • Talking on handheld cell phones
  • Emailing or using the Internet
  • Using navigation systems
  • Changing radio stations, Mp3 players or iPods
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to friends and passengers in the vehicle
  • Grooming
