Motor vehicles are very useful. In fact, most residents in Wisconsin utilize a personal vehicle to get around and travel to and from work. And depending on the time or day and type of road traveled on, motorists can expect to share the road with a wide variety of vehicles large and small. All motorists are tasked to drive safe and remain attentive. Unfortunately, this does not always occur.
Distracted driving is an ongoing and growing concern. Drivers are often pressured to do too many things. Whether it is using navigation systems, talking on the phone, conversing with passengers, texting a message, checking an e-mail or changing the radio, a driver often finds themselves taking their eyes off the road, hands off of the wheel and mind off the task of driving.
