PITTSBURGH DISTRACTED DRIVING ACCIDENT LAWYERS
Distracted driving refers to driving while engaging in activities that take our attention away from the road. Distracted driving has become a national problem. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 3,154 people were killed and another 424,000 people were injured as a result of distracted driving in 2013. It has been estimated that at any point in time, at least 660,000 people are using cell phones while driving in the United States.
WHAT ARE EXAMPLES OF DISTRACTED DRIVING?
Distracted driving is not limited to texting and cell phone usage only. Other forms of distracted driving include eating, reaching for items inside of the vehicle, manipulating a GPS system, looking at a map, changing stations on a radio, talking to others, shaving or applying makeup, and adjusting an MP3 player.
Exhausted driving is another problematic area. Over-worked truck drivers and employees who nod off behind the wheel cause catastrophic auto accidents.
