This literature review described distraction in terms of breakdowns in interruption management and problems of engagement. It also described mechanisms that guide engagement and disengagement in driving and non-driving tasks. The literature review also discussed attention and motivations for distractions. Research showed that the willingness to engage in distractions was particularly strong among young drivers who were more willing to use technology while driving than drivers of other age groups. The author recommended that future research focus on the development of resources to address the problem of distraction.
