Ignoring the road to stare in a rearview mirror

Some of the more commonly-recognized forms of distracted driving include using a cell phone to text, take pictures or browse the web, turning the radio station and eating food while behind the wheel. However, there are many other examples of potentially dangerous distractions that can divert the attention of drivers. In fact, some may not even seem dangerous and may even be connected to safe, responsible driving. For example, using a rearview mirror properly is an important part of safe driving. However, a driver who stares in his or her rearview mirror for too long, for whatever reason, may be more likely to collide with another vehicle or veer off of the road and cause a single-vehicle crash.

Drivers may stare in their rearview mirrors for too long for different reasons. Sometimes, a driver may simply watch a car behind them to monitor the behavior of another driver. Or, someone may stare into their rearview mirror to witness some spectacle, such as a firework display or an air show. In fact, these distractions are especially concerning during the Fourth of July. Some drivers may simply stare at a vehicle behind them for too long, not realizing that they have veered into another lane or that another vehicle has crossed the center line and will soon collide with them.

Whether you were hit by someone who was distracted while driving, or your loved one was involved in a crash that you suspect was caused by a distracted driver, it is important to hold accountable any driver whose carelessness causes a crash.
