This literature review included a broad overview of distraction and how it affects drivers both visually and cognitively. In addition to defining distraction, the author discussed some of the methods employed by researchers to study driver distraction, such as the lane change test and the detection response task (DRT). The author highlighted that while many studies have been conducted to examine how various technologies enable driver distraction, more research is needed to better understand the complex interaction between drivers, vehicles, and roadways in order to make interactions safer and reduce distractions.
