Statistics of Distracted Driving

Another huge risk factor when it comes to car safety is distracted driving. Operating a motor vehicle demands 100 percent of your attention at all times, and anything that distracts your attention raises your risk of being in an accident by a huge factor. Car safety experts recently announced that after a study of thousands of car accidents, it was determined that 40 percent, or almost half, are caused by distracted drivers. When you add that figure to the number of car wrecks caused by drunk driving, it becomes clear that there are really very few car “accidents”, but actually millions and millions of collisions that result from irresponsible and negligent driving.
