In this article, the hazard-based accident duration model and the reaction time due to various types of distractions are considered. This analysis is mainly considered T-junction or T-junctions like all other forms of road geometries which are more prone to accident. The model proposed is constructed by using a electronics devices along with driving simulator, to study the behavior of the yang inexperienced drivers as well as an experienced driver about their reaction by calling their phone from unknown numbers intentionally. The results show that drivers distracted by mobile phones uses the hard breaking due to least available time to respond after identification of an event. Some of the research and theory bearing on decision making and risk perception, driver situation awareness, and possible mediators of risk-taking is also analyzed here.
