Using a navigation system.

Trying to use a GPS or other navigation system takes a driver’s eyes and concentration off the road and his hand off the wheel. Even a few seconds of fiddling with these systems can distract drivers from seeing sudden dangers on the road.


A driver who puts on makeup or combs her hair while driving may be distracted and have her hands off the wheel.


Reading anything—including a map or directions—takes a driver’s eyes, hand, and mind off the road for more than a few seconds. Drivers should pull over, or let a passenger do the reading for them.
