Devastating Effects of Distracted Driving
In 2012 alone, 3,328 individuals lost their lives in distracted driving-related
accidents. The U.S. Department of Transportation has made efforts to eliminate
the use of cell phones and texting behind the wheel since 2009. States
have been urged to adopt strict laws to bring an end to these catastrophes
and to raise public awareness of the consequences. The moment a driver
removes his or her attention and focus from the road, distracted driving occurs.
The following are common examples of distracted driving:
- Eating or drinking
- Personal grooming
- Operating navigational systems
- Cell phone use
- Reading maps
- Conversing with passengers
The growth in technology has brought new distractions into our vehicles,
creating a severe safety crisis. When a driver chooses to pick up a cell
phone, he or she is diverting their visual, manual, and cognitive attention.
The individual raises the risk of a crash by 25% then when they are distracted
