Is it a problem or an epidemic? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that distracted driving is the cause of approximately one-tenth of automobile crashes ending in fatalities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nine people lose their lives, and 1,000 are injured daily from this situation; in 2016 that translated into 3450 lives. What constitutes distracted driving? Any activity that takes away from focusing on safe driving; whether it’s texting, speaking on the phone or to someone in the car, grooming, eating and drinking, tinkering with the sound, navigation or entertainment systems.
