DNA DatabaseOn this month’s traffic segment Garda Derek Cloughley was in studio to discuss "driver distraction" and how seemingly simple things affect a drivers ability to react, especially in a sudden or emergency situation. 

The most obvious example of how a driver is distracted are mobile phones, talking, texting or data/ internet use  – however there are many more that interfere with the task of driving.
