While driving, it’s crucial for the driver to be focused manually, cognitively, auditorily, and visually. This means that their hands are on the wheel, their mind is on the task at hand, they’re listening for possible hazards, and their eyes are alert and focused on what’s in front of them. When there are deficiencies in any one of those elements, that driver could cause an accident. Collisions in Cincinnati are particularly dangerous because of the amount of traffic on the road at any given time.

When a driver with tunnel vision operates their vehicle, they are doing so while visually impaired. They don’t have the ability to see what’s going on around them, only in front of them. When this happens, it’s easy for a crash to occur. It’s important for all drivers to understand the dangers of tunnel vision behind the wheel. This awareness can help prevent wrecks and save lives.

Staying in a hospital after a serious car accident is a possibility if your injuries are severe. During this time, you’ll have round the clock care and won’t have to worry about necessities like nutrition and bathing. However, when you go home, you will become responsible for these tasks again. You may be out of the hospital, but you could still need some form of care or assistance at home.

The most common distractions we think of while driving include texting, talking, and emailing. That, however, is not where the distractions stop. In 2015, an Alabama man received a ticket in Atlanta, Georgia after he was found to be eating and driving. This caused some serious debate as to what is considered distracted driving. As a result, Georgia has been in the process of reworking their distracted driving bill.

If you’re a resident of Georgia and you drive, it’s crucial to be aware of the state laws that affect how you operate behind the wheel. While there are no specific laws that ban eating while driving, Georgia’s Hands-Free law contains wording that could lead to fines if a person is found to be distracted while eating and operating a vehicle.
