Distracted driving is anything that causes you to lose your attention from the road while driving, divert your eyes from the roadway ahead, or takes your hands off the wheel while you’re driving.
In a country with millions of miles of roads and approximately 253 million cars, car accidents are an unfortunate fact of life. In the US alone, over 37,000 people die in road crashes every year. And nearly 2 and a half million Americans are injured or disabled in car accidents annually. The effects of road crashes are often long-term and far-reaching.
