This could be any distraction within the vehicle that a driver is not focusing on the roadway. Drivers should pay attention to the roadway. Set down any electronic or communication devices until you have safely reached your destination. Many fatal crashes involves a driver that was distracted from the task of operating a motor vehicle. Remember Drive Alert, Arrive Alive.
