The decision to drive distracted.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, over 3,400 lives were lost due to distracted driving in 2016 alone. This devastating statistic is due to a choice, countless wrong choices. The latest buzz regarding distracted driving is texting & driving. Though cell phone usage is a large component of distracted driving, there are many other sources of distraction in our fast-paced society. Distracted driving is any task that takes the driver’s attention away from the road ahead.
