Distracted driving has become one of the greatest contributors to car accidents in the United States. Many believe that distracted driving only occurs when they’re texting, but it actually goes a lot further than that. Anytime that you are driving, the only thing you should be focusing upon is the road and the vehicles around you. However, distractions are plentiful and can include any of the following:
- Talking on the phone
- Using navigation
- Talking with passengers
- Trying to tend to children in the back seat while driving
AT&T has been promoting the idea that “it can wait,” meaning that whatever it is that you’re doing while driving can wait till you’re done driving. They created this powerful video to show what can happen when you take your eye off the road for even one second.
Our Minneapolis injury attorneys encourage you to remember that no post, text, or message is so important that it can’t wait. Please help us to spread awareness about distracted driving and how easy it is to prevent those types of accidents.
