Distracted Driving Often Causes Serious And Fatal Injuries
If a driver loses concentration for just a moment, he or she can cause an accident that may seriously injure another driver, a passenger, a pedestrian on the side of the road or a bicyclist who is enjoying a daily ride.
Distracted driving occurs any time a driver does not give the road his or her undivided attention. Distracted driving may take many forms, including:
- Talking on a cellphone
- Eating and drinking
- Arguing with passengers
- Applying makeup and other grooming
- Use of GPS and other electronic devices
