Auto accidents are the top cause of injuries and death in the United States today, taking the lives of over 40,000 individuals per year.
Specifically, driver distraction is the main cause of most of the auto accidents in the US. Over 400,000 auto accidents are reported yearly that happen because of distracted driving. Unfortunately, drivers can become distracted in so many ways today – from their smartphones to other screens inside their vehicles. Though some drivers may feel safe looking away from the road for a few moments, this is never, ever safe for anyone involved. While we are traveling on any roadway, we are almost constantly in motion, opening up the opportunity for error. This is why paying constant and vigilant attention to the road and our immediate surroundings is paramount if we wish to protect ourselves and others.
