Distracted Driving Crashes - still a real danger
In 2016, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 3,450 people died in distraction-affected crashes. This is a decrease of less than 1% from 3,477 deaths in 2015. About 391,000 additional people were injured in distraction-affected crashes in 2015, down from 431,000 in 2014.
While these stats show some reduction in the loss of life, driver distraction remains a serious safety issue on our highways.
Please, take to you kids, and especially teen drivers, about the dangers of distracted driving. It will make the roads safer for all of us.
