Distracted driving remains a safety concern

Driving is such an ingrained aspect of modern life in Arizona that it has become almost an automatic function. Many people become somewhat complacent in their driving habits. Not only are the best safety practices often ignored, but time has also become so precious that motorists often try to accomplish other tasks while they are behind the wheel. This, however, can present problems for the other motorists and passengers sharing the roadways.

As each generation of new vehicles comes equipped with more sophisticated technological advances, the options for drivers increase. A relatively new term, distracted driving, has been used to categorize the negative side effects of the phenomenon. While it began primarily with talking on the phone, recent studies have revealed drivers are using their devices less for making calls. It is the other things one can do with a cell phone that cause the most distractions.

There are three types of distraction for a driver. Eyes can be diverted from the road, hands can lose contact with the wheel and the mind can be diverted from driving. Texting, as an example, can involve all three. Of course, any number of things can distract a driver's attention, and many have nothing to do with technology. It's not easy trying to drive with a crying baby, while trying to sip a cup of hot coffee or applying makeup.

Motor vehicle accidents are often the result of driver negligence. Unfortunately, such negligence could lead to serious injuries. With help from a personal injury lawyer, a crash victim could hold the at-fault parties accountable.
