What Are the Statistics on the Dangers of Distracted Driving?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), distracted driving is one of the biggest safety threats on the road throughout the nation. Each and every day this ill-advised practice kills more than 15 people and injures more than 1,200 people. Despite this, an alarming number of people still engage in distracting behaviors behind the wheel, and with the advent of mobile technologies, the severity of this issue continues to grow.
What Are the Common Forms of Distracted Driving in Atlanta?
According to the NHTSA, there are three main types of distracted driving: visual, manual, and cognitive. Visual distractions take the driver’s eyes off the road while manual distractions take the driver’s hands off the steering wheel. Cognitive distractions occur when the driver’s mind is not focused on the task of driving or the road ahead. All of these can contribute to devastating crashes.
Below are some of the most common – and dangerous – distractions for motorists:
- Talking or texting
- Turning on the radio, CD player, or digital music device
- Using navigation apps
- Conversing with other passengers
- Eating and drinking
- Picking up dropped objects
- Putting on makeup, shaving, or brushing hair
Of all of these distractions, texting while driving is the most dangerous. It has caused some of the worst car accidents, including head-on collisions.
