For the first time in nearly 20 years, traffic fatality rates are increasing in the United States. One of the primary reasons for this is distracted driving. Today's drivers have access to more technology than ever before. They drive while distracted by this technology, often focusing on cell phones, GPS systems or on-board computers instead of the road. Some drivers are even caught texting while driving.
In a perfect world, every driver would be cautious and observant while operating a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, this rarely happens in real life. Drivers often do many things that distract them while behind the wheel. They talk on cell phones, eat fast food, apply make-up, adjust the radio and interact with children in the back seat.
This distracted driving causes hundreds and even thousands of car accidents a year on roads in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. And these accident cause serious injuries, like amputations, spinal cord injuries and wrongful death.
