Ask: How Do You Define Distracted Driving?

In a group setting, challenge your employees to define distracted driving.

Set parameters by telling them up front this is an activity that requires common sense, not the use of a dictionary. Call on individuals and ask them to share their answers.

The Texas Department of Transportation provides some examples in its Talk. Text. Crash. — Distracted Driving Campaign:

  • Posting on social media
  • Checking email
  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Reading
  • Programming a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player or MP3 player

Conclude with this thought: Is it enough merely to talk about high-risk driving behaviors?
