We all are aware of the dangers of distracted driving, but there are other activities we engage in that demand our full attention to avoid accidents and injuries. Many people are hurt or killed when they become distracted while working or walking. Distraction has taken and destroyed a lot of lives, but we don't have to let this happen; we can do something about it.

Topics include maintaining concentration, avoiding distracting other people, fixing dangerous situations, distracted walking, the four types of distracted driving, making a conscious effort to avoid distractions, and avoiding fatigue.
