- Lighting, smoking, or putting out a cigarette or other similar product
- Unrestrained pets
- Insects or other distractions in the car
- Adjusting mirrors, seatbelts, audio, or climate control
- Eating and drinking behind the wheel
- Applying makeup or otherwise grooming oneself
- Reaching for an item on the floorboard or passenger seat
- Other occupants, often children in the back seat
- People, objects, and events outside the vehicle
- Cognitive distractions that occur inside the driver’s head
