Question: What is distracted or inattentive driving in Wisconsin?

Answer: Inattentive driving occurs when someone is not paying sufficient attention to driving while operating a motor vehicle. Now the statute for inattentive driving states that no person while driving a motor vehicle may be engaged or occupied with an activity other than driving the vehicle that interferes, or reasonably appears to interfere, with the person’s ability to drive the vehicle safely. Common reasons for this charge are texting, eating while driving and even personal grooming.
