Accidents Due To Distracted Driving
As more technology ends up in our vehicles, the harder it is to pay attention to the road. We already know the statistics of how dangerous it is to text and drive. Although texting is the most common topic for mainstream media there are other things that can become just as distracting. As the music industry is changing many cars are no longer equipped with regular cd players. Built in apps like Pandora and Spotify offer music that can be rated on if you like a song that is playing or not. Although it is not required for the listener to do this it is just another distraction for the driver. Let's say it takes 3 seconds for the driver to look down and thumb up or down a particular song while traveling at 70 mph.
70mph =102.66 feet per second
102.66 feet per second @ 3 seconds will be 307.98 feet traveled. That is almost the full length of a football field. If the person in front of you brakes abruptly any time within those 3 seconds there is a good chance you will hit them. A car accident caused because you were determining that you liked or disliked a song.
It's not just technology that provides distractions. Eating or drinking while driving can be just as dangerous, especially if that food or drink is spilled. First instinct is to clean it up but this means most of the attention goes from driving to the new task. In order to avoid a collision from distracted driving, try to avoid:
