Thousands of people die every year in distracted driving accidents. Hundreds of thousands are injured. This is a growing problem in Michigan which is only getting worse. If you are texting while driving you are three times as likely to get into an auto accident as when you have put the phone away.

Distracted Driving can very easily lead to serious motor vehicle accidents. During the average 5 seconds it takes to send a text, a driver on the highway can cross an entire football field. While 5 seconds doesn’t seem very long, a car making a quick lane change or a sudden back up could make the difference between life and death.

Younger drivers are at particularly high risk for a distracted driving accident. Nearly half of all teens with cell phones admit to texting while driving. One-third call texting while driving easy. Even so, one in ten crashes involving drivers under age 20 involved a cell phone.

Because the drivers in these accidents are distracted, they are often higher speed impacts than other accidents on the same roadways. The higher the speed, the more likely a car crash will result in serious injuries. So distracted driving accidents are especially likely to result in death or disability.
