Shimul Kabir
Distracted driving is a hazard with fatal consequences. Authorities constantly carry out vital awareness campaigns. Distracted driving is something that could take away your life, your passengers and many people's lives on the road. There're multiple distraction factors and all of them risky. We'll mention some of the most common factors.

1. Driving While Angry

Emotional situations cause a great distraction for people as they drift our concentration away from the road. Anger also contributes to making our driving less prudent and increasing the risk of accident. If your emotional state gets out of control, it is better to take few minutes to calm down and focus on driving.

2. Listening to Loud Music

It's common to listen to some music while driving. Problem arises when we don't have safety rules. While playing our favorite song, we rush to look for the control panel of sound equipment and raise the volume. When we add high volume, it makes it difficult to hear properly. As a result, we may get into an accident.

3. Pets In the Vehicle

Many people travel with their pets in the vehicle. They forget to protect the pet within a security system. Any living being is prone to suffer from anxiety in enclosed spaces and they try to get their owner's attention. If you travel with your pet, keep it safely.

4. Young Children

Parents know how difficult it's to drive with children because children get impatient. Children by nature tend to be active. During long trips, they cause annoyance which is a great distraction. In case they need attention, find a safe place, park your vehicle and take care of kids.

5. Eating or Drinking

Though it is difficult to believe, both activities are frequent among drivers and common in accidents due to distracted driving. If you move too early to work and haven't had your breakfast, be patient! It's best to drive attentively, reach the destination and find your time to eat and drink something.

6. Searching For Objects In the Vehicle

Some drivers have the habit of multitasking, trying to search for objects near the driver's cab while the car is in motion. The distraction while driving is an invitation to disaster. When you drive, never get distracted! Nothing is as important as your safety, and if you need to take any object, wait to reach the destination.

7. Using Mobile

Many use mobile while driving. As a result, they are distracted and get into an accident. So, if you need to use mobile, find a quiet place, park your vehicle and then use the mobile.
