Distracted Driving Accidents in Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids & Paw Paw

The inventions of the smartphone and the portable tablet were significant technological achievements that advanced our ability to communicate and obtain information. Unfortunately, these inventions have also caused unwanted consequences, specifically distracting drivers while behind the wheel of a car, truck or other vehicle.

Distracted driving is a growing problem. Teenagers, adults and even the elderly send and receive text messages, check their email, update Facebook and check Twitter while on the road. These actions have resulted in thousands of serious, yet preventable car accidents throughout the U.S., many of them resulting in serious or fatal injuries.

Distracted Driving Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 600,000 drivers are currently using their cellphones or another electronic device at this very moment (assuming it is daytime). That is a staggering number, one that authorities have worked hard to decrease. Despite these efforts, however, this number has remained steady for the past five years.

Other disturbing facts include:

  • A driver's eyes are removed from the road for more than four seconds when sending or receiving a text message.
  • A driver is three times more likely to get into an accident when using a hand-held device while driving.
  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 1,000 people are injured each day in crashes involving a distracted driver.

Other Forms Of Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is not limited to using cellphones or other mobile devices. Distracted driving includes any activity that diverts a driver's attention from the road.

This could include:

  • Eating or drinking
  • Applying makeup
  • Reading a map
  • Changing the radio station
  • Using a GPS device
  • Attending to children
  • Changing clothes (yes, people actually do this)
