Is distracted driving the same as reckless driving?

Not exactly. Distracted driving is more of a subset of reckless driving. Driving while manually, visually, or cognitively distracted recklessly endangers not just oneself, but others on the road as well because the driver is not paying full attention to his or her driving duties. This behavior results in serious car accidents every year, and drivers who are guilty of distracted driving should be held accountable for their actions.
