The Dangers of Distracted Driving
Each year in the United States, approximately 3,000 people die due to distracted drving. In 2022, distracted driving broke its seasonal pattern of being higher in the summer and lower in the winter and became consistent throughout the entire year. Cell phone users are 5.36 times more likely to get into a car crash than non-cell phone users.
Despite many laws against distracted driving, the practice continues. The diversion of attention away from the roadway puts those who use the roadways in danger.
