Accidents are the 4th leading cause of death in the United States. In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration there are more than 1,700 fatalities and 840,000 injuries yearly due to vehicle crashes off public highways.
Yet, most auto accidents are preventable. All to often a driver will operate a motor vehicle while texting, eating, not having gotten enough sleep, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Other times, drivers will speed down the road distracted by the phone, checking email, a song playing on Spotify, or a hundred other possible distractions in our ever faster moving world. The roadways are literally filled with distracted and reckless drivers.
