The Rising Cost of Distracted Driving: Facts and Stats

Distracted driving has been around as long as there have been cars. From adjusting the radio and eating to texting and talking on the phone, it only takes one second of glancing away from the road to cause an accident. The results can be deadly.

The use of cell phones and other electronics has caused the number of accidents and deaths due to distracted driving to skyrocket: In fact, the National Safety Council reports that distracted driving is now the third cause of road fatalities, right behind speeding and alcohol. At any given daylight moment across the U.S., approximately 600,000 drivers are using cell phones or manipulating electronic devices while driving (NOPUS)
