Distracted Driving Accidents

The advent of cellphones and smartphones has made the roads more dangerous. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association has launched an informative website to discuss the danger.* According to the site:

Distracted driving is any activity that could divert a person's attention away from the primary task of driving. All distractions endanger driver, passenger and bystander safety. These types of distractions include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Using a cellphone or smartphone
  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video

In 2011, more than 3,000 people were killed in crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 3,267 in 2010. An additional 387,000 people were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, compared to 416,000 injured in 2010.
