Most auto accidents are caused by driver negligence, including speeding, drunk driving and failure to obey traffic laws. Distracted driving is another form of driver negligence that contributes to a significant number of auto accidents.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 16 percent of all fatal auto crashes and 21 percent of all auto crashes causing injury are the result of distracted driving.
Distracted driving may take many forms, including:
- Texting while driving
- Talking on a cellphone
- Eating or drinking
- Arguing with passengers
- Grooming or applying makeup
- Use of GPS and other electronic devices
