Distracted driving continues to be a major issue throughout the United States, taking thousands of lives every year. Whether you are adjusting the radio, sending a text, or putting directions into your GPS; taking your eyes off the road for even just one second can yield devastating results.
Each year, 3,450 people die in accidents due to distracted drivers—accidents that could have been prevented. We examined this unsettling trend in an earlier blog.
With the Summer vacation season now upon us—and millions more drivers taking to the roads—the potential exists for the problem to get much worse. To put the dangers of distracted driving in perspective, consider that taking your eyes off the road for a mere five seconds at 55 MPH is equivalent to driving the length of a football field with your eyes closed.
With stakes so high, North Carolina prohibits drivers from texting while in motion. Adult drivers who violates this law and are caught face a $100 fine. This Summer, remain attentive behind the wheel. It could save lives.
