Driving cannot be done safely unless the task has your full attention. Anything that can take your attention off the road can increase your chance of being involved in a motor vehicle crash.
Each day, approximately nine people are killed while more than 1,000 have been injured in crashes caused by a distracted driver. In motor vehicle crashes involving a distracted driver, approximately 319,000 people were reported to be injured in United States wrecks.
In 2015, there were 3,166 people killed in distracted driving crashes; in 2017, distracted drivers were the cause of 9% of fatal motor vehicle accidents.
Keeping your eyes on the road can significantly prevent the risk of any tragedies from happening, but even the most careful drivers can get to car accidents.
