Reports indicate that 30% to 50% of all car accidents are the result of driver distractions. Driver distractions can include texting and talking on a cell phone, driver fatigue, eating and drinking, smoking, allowing pets to travel unsecured in the motor vehicle and riding with passengers that interfere with your focus on the task at hand.
Driving any motor vehicle is a complicated task that we take for granted, but that involves physical and mental coordination and quick reflexes, judgments and skills. Distracted driving is a risky and dangerous activity that endangers everyone on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that distracted driving is a major contributing factor in most crashes and near-crashes and the practice is just as deadly as drunk driving and more widespread.
