What is distracted driving?


As last week's blog discussed, distracted driving is a serious concern which can lead to car accidents. As a society, we are improving our understanding of what distracted driving is and the dangerous impact it can have. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics reveal that nine victims are killed each day in the United States in car accidents that are reported to involve a distracted driver. In addition, more than 1,153 victims are injured each day in the United States in car accidents that are reported to involve a distracted driver.

Texting drivers most likely to get into car accidents


Texting and driving has been a perennial problem not just here in Oklahoma, but in the rest of the country as well. The danger of this type of distracted driving is obvious because it removes a driver's eyes from the road long enough to cause a collision or be involved in one. Howeverr, drivers still persist in practicing this dangerous act. Nonetheless, knowing the latest statistics about texting and driving may change a driver's perspective, preventing future car accidents and the eventual injuries and fatalities that come with them.
