Phones a huge distraction, and it’s killing us (Part 1)

By Michael Harrold

The advent of the smart phone has brought with it a deluge of texting and other distractive behavior while driving a vehicle. This is no longer confined to the young and restless – we see people of all ages, genders and backgrounds using phones when they should be driving.

SAFETY THREATS

Some startling figures:

·  At any given daylight moment across America, approximately 660,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving.

·  10 percent of fatal crashes, 18 percent of injury crashes and 16 percent of all police-reported motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2014 were reported as distraction-affected crashes.

·   In 2014, 3,179 people were killed and an estimated 431,000 injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.

·   Each day in the United States, at least eight people are killed and 1,161 injured in crashes that are reported to involve a distracted driver.

These numbers are most likely higher as drivers involved in accidents may be reluctant to admit to driving distracted.
