Car Accidents Caused by Distracted Drivers
The True Dangers of Distracted Driving
In the United States, distracted driving—which includes texting and using a cellphone while driving—is consistently one of the leading causes of car accidents. According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, 48 states, Washington D.C., and several U.S. territories have banned text messaging for all drivers.
In 2019 alone, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administrationrecorded that, throughout the United States, distracted driving caused:
735,000 non-fatal injuries
Types of Driver Distraction that Cause Accidents
There are three types of distractions that can lead to crashes and collisions on the road:
Visual Distractions: any activity that takes the driver’s eyes off the road
Cognitive Distractions: any activity that interrupts the driver’s mind from focusing on driving
Manual Distractions: any activity that leads to the driver’s hands leaving the steering wheel
Texting while driving significantly increases a driver’s risk of an auto accident because it involves all three types of distractions.
