Three things to know about distracted driving

On Behalf of | Jan 25, 2022 | Car Accidents |

Too often, men and women get into their vehicles and begin to drive while distracted. It happens in Connecticut and throughout the rest of the nation. As readers may know, a distracted driver is a dangerous driver because their attention is not fully on the road before them. However, there are facts about distracted driving that may surprise and enlighten those who are interested in learning more about this dangerous but preventable practice.

Fact #1: Distracted driving is more than just texting and driving

Texting and driving is a serious issue that leads to accidents on Connecticut roads. It is not, though, the only way that individuals succumb to distractions while driving. Drivers can be distracted by items they hold, things that they see or hear, or even the thoughts and daydreams in their heads. Distracted driving happens whenever something – almost anything – causes a driver’s attention to leave the road.

Fact #2: Distracted driving is deadly

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average of 8 individuals die each day in the country because of distracted driving. Because it causes drivers to lose focus, distracted driving can increase the chances that a distracted driver will be involved in a motor vehicle accident, causing injury or death to themselves or others.

Fact #3: Distracted driving is preventable

The unfortunate truth about distracted driving is that it is generally preventable. Drivers do not have to answer their phones when they ring, and they can map out their directions before they get into their cars. They can take preventative measures to keep their passengers and pets from causing them distractions, and they can leave grooming and food items at home. Almost every driving distraction can be eliminated from a vehicle to prevent accidents from distracted driving.

Accidents from distracted driving are common and unfortunately serious. When suffering losses from a collision caused by a distracted driver, victims should remember they may have rights to compensation under the law.
