Motorists drive over three miles daily while distracted

Distracted driving was involved in over 3,000 traffic fatalities in 2017. A recent study revealed that the average American motorist drives 3.3 miles while distracted each day. This behavior only multiplies the risk of car accidents.

Rear-passengers face greater injury risk

Drivers and other front-seat vehicle passengers have received the benefit of airbags and seatbelts, which together operate to keep a person in the proper position in a car crash. However, according to an Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study, rear passengers have not received these protections in car accidents.

Cell phone use while driving increasing

The risks posed by a distracted driver have been a growing concern for several years. Driving while using a cell phone, for example, was attributed to over 800 fatal car accidents in this country in 2017. The number of observed motorists using cell phones also rose, according to a survey by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety Highway Loss Data Institute.

Speeding prevention needs accelerated

Driving at excessive speeds has been a major part of traffic fatalities in this country. Despite serious car accidents, however, speeding has been publicly-acceptable and prevention efforts have been limited. The Governor's Highway Safety Association made these findings in a recently-released report.
