TextLess Live More empowers young people nationwide to change their behaviors behind the wheel. One text, one moment of distraction, one glance down, can mean disaster. By simply putting the phone down while driving and encouraging others to do the same, you can prevent tragic crashes and save lives.

types of distraction

Distracted driving happens because of three different kinds of distraction: 
visual, manual, cognitive.

  • Visual distractions take our eyes off the road. 
  • Manual distractions make us take our hands off the wheel. 
  • Cognitive distractions drag our minds away from our driving. 

Using a phone while driving is particularly dangerous because it causes all three kinds of distraction.
