WATCH: Be warned. You might think you can get away, but cops are specifically looking for drivers who text behind the wheel.
Distracted driving is the term associated with this driving behavior. Here are some of the types of distractions:
* Using a cell phone
* Eating and drinking
* Using a navigation system
However, certain actions like texting, using Facebook, Snapchat, etc. require visual and cognitive attention, creating a severe circumstance while behind the wheel.
WATCH: PSA-like commercials are now being created by telecommunication companies like AT&T to inform the public about the dangers of driving while texting or using the phone without a hands-free device.
The general public and also members of the Legislatures in all the states do not take distracted driving seriously enough.
Although legislation is slow to combat the dangers of distracted driving, safety experts across the nation are ramping up efforts to make a significant change within our communities and shared roads and highway systems.
WATCH: Several reported accidents across the country were directly linked to drivers playing the popular mobile game, Pokémon Go. Here's a video recorded by the Baltimore Police a few months ago.
