Dangers of Distracted Driving

Common sense tells us that we must keep our hands, eyes and mind on the road while driving and research backs up this intuitive thinking.

Consider the following facts gleaned from a study by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute:

  • A driver is 23 times more likely to cause a crash if he or she is text messaging
  • Sending or receiving a text takes a driver's eyes off the road for an average of 4.6 seconds
  • Using a headset is not much safer than using a handheld cellphone both actions are dangerous

Cellphone use and texting are not the only examples of distracted driving, which comes in various forms. You can be the cause or victim of a serious action by a driver who is performing any action that removes his or her attention from the road.

The following activities are also dangerous to perform while driving:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Tuning the radio
  • Talking to other people in the car
  • Personal grooming
  • Operating GPS devices
