    Abstract

    Driver can be distracted by many reasons, the most typical being: In-vehicle devices, talking with a passenger or talking on the phone, objects outside of the car, or simply anything causing eyes-off or brains-off from the primary task, driving. The magnitude of distraction has been estimated. According to NHTSA distraction plays a role in 25% of the police reported accidents, and according to SWOV 2 - 25%. In many sources the magnitude was estimated even larger. In addition to the drivers, distraction is a problem for other road users, too.
