A recent study showed an average of 1 distraction or interruption every 3 minutes while driving a motor vehicle. Due to human fallibilities, distractions and interruptions increase the likelihood of human errors by diverting the attention of the driver from the task at hand or by causing lapses in reaction time. While human factors research findings indicated adverse effects on task performance due to distractions and interruptions, the effects of realistic distractions and interruptions while driving are not known.
Moreover, none of the research studies to date have attempted to evaluate the effects of realistic interruptions, which are also prevalent while driving. Thus, increased understanding about the adverse effects of distractions and interruptions while driving offers the potential to improve driving safety or through the implementation of interventions to minimize human errors.
