More Distracted Drivers Means More Distracted Driving Injuries
According to the National Center of Statistics and Analysis, each day in the United States, distracted driving results in: (1) approximately nine people being killed; and (2) 1,000 more being injured. Similarly, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2015 alone, 3,477 people were killed and 391,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes caused by distracted drivers.
The distractions that lead to many these accidents and life-altering injuries include:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cellphone while driving
- Brushing hair, applying makeup, shaving and other types of grooming
- Changing radio stations
- Adjusting climate control settings
- Changing music on an mp3 player, iPod, iPhone or other device
- Eating and drinking
- Talking to passengers
