Distracted driving is a concern everywhere, including in California and the Los Angeles area. Distracted driving is also a serious problem with a reported 80 percent of car accidents involving some type of driver distraction.

While talking on a cell phone or texting while driving are at the top of the list of distracted driving behaviors, a variety of additional activities drivers engage in are also considered distracted driving.
