Kenneth Mullins remembers the day he learned how to drive. He didn’t have the distractions of cellphones or the car radio to take his attention.

Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle crashes with more than 3,000 people killed in 2014 thanks to distracted drivers.

According to the National Traffic and Highway Administration, young drivers are more likely to drive without their full focus on the road.

Texting is one of the biggest distractions for drivers, as it requires a driver’s visual, mental and physical attention.

Drivers can limit their distractions by putting any necessary devices on before getting on the road.
