Distracted Driving Accidents is Becoming More and More an Issue
As we become more integrated with our phones distracted driving is on the rise
Distracted driving has contributed largely to the increased amount of motor vehicle accidents that occur in the United States every year. Distracted driving is not limited to just texting while driving. It can also include eating, conversing with passengers, applying makeup, talking on the phone, using a GPS or navigation device, and tuning the radio. Although there have been numerous laws passed to discourage distracted driving, and campaigns to increase awareness of the consequences of distracted driving, this issue is still a threat to motor vehicle operators on the road every day.
