THE DANGER OF DISTRACTED DRIVERS
In 2015, 3,477 lives were lost and 391,000 bodies were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.1 Distracted driving is “any activity that diverts attention from driving, including talking or texting on your phone”2 One of the biggest obstacles interfering with road safety today is phone use while driving. Texting and driving is especially dangerous because it encompasses all three types of driving distractions including visual, manual, and cognitive distractions.3 During daylight hours, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones while driving.4 Since phone use while driving poses an immediate danger to everyone on the road, legal intervention and individual action is necessary to make our roads safe.
