With more and more electronic vehicle systems, such as built-in GPS screens, music units, and back-seat video players in addition hand held devices that drivers cannot seem to ignore, they are creating significant dangers to all other vehicle operators with these constant distractions.

- Talking on the Phone
- Texting while Driving
- Adjusting the Radio or GPS
- Eating while Driving
- Applying Makeup

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) is working diligently in order to get automakers and state legislators to restrict the numbers of devices built into vehicles in addition the limiting the use of cell phones while operating a vehicle.

The agency reports that drivers using cell phones for calls or texting increase the risk of a car accident three times.
