Fort Lauderdale Distracted Drivers

Driver Distractions and Car Accidents

The world runs at a very rapid pace. Multi-tasking is a skill that most people have acquired simply so they can get ahead in life. However, once you get behind the wheel, multi-tasking can be a dangerous activity. The most important thing while a driver can do is to pay attention to the road. Phone calls, text messages and even eating while driving can lead to dangerous car accidents in which innocent victims pay the price. Driver distraction is one of the most common causes of serious car accidents.

Unfortunately not all drivers pay attention as they should and as a result, many people are injured or killed in all different types of car accidents every day. One of the more common issues in recent years is accidents involving a distracted driver who was driving while texting, weaving in lanes, or failing to stop at a red light, stop sign, or when the vehicle in front of them must stop suddenly.

Some of the main types of driver distractions include:

  • Talking on a cell phone or other wireless device
  • Talking to other passengers
  • Texting
  • Eating or drinking
  • Shaving, applying makeup or other personal hygiene activities
