In the last few years, the number of road accidents is increasing worldwide. According to the World Health Organization the most common cause behind these accidents is driver's distraction and in many cases is caused by the use of a mobile phone. An attempt to develop a system for detecting distracted drivers and warn the responsible person against it was done. The system is a CNN based system that detects and identifies the cause of distraction. The base architecture for the CNN is VGG-16 and

Also, the performance of a lightweight attention module (squeeze-and-excitation) was evaluated. Experimental results show that the system outperforms earlier lightweight models in literature achieving an accuracy of 95.82%.
