Distracted Driving Accidents

Texting while driving has become almost synonymous with distracted driving. But distracted driving includes many more activities such as using apps while driving, navigating a GPS while driving, eating while driving, etc.

While everyone knows distracted driving is a problem, many people believe their driving skills are sufficient to multitask while driving. Unfortunately, driving while distracted kills. In fact, it killed more than 5,000 people in a single year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and it accounted for 16 percent of all fatal crashes.
