Attentive driving is one of the most important aspects surrounding safe driving, allowing drivers to react to surrounding vehicles, debris, road conditions and weather. In contrast, mobile and electric devices, radios, GPS devices and even cell phones, leave drivers vulnerable to distraction. Distracted driving accidents can often occur because of the reduced ability to react, which plagues drivers who take their eyes and mind of the road for even mere seconds.
