Distracted driving continues to be a pervasive problem

Distracted driving continues to be a problem in New York and across the nation. Despite educational campaigns and laws that prohibit texting while driving, many people continue to use their smartphones while behind the wheel.

According to the 2019 Travelers Risk Index that was prepared by a leading insurer, nearly 80 percent of respondents reported that they talk on the phone while they drive. Another 30 percent of respondents reported that they have been almost involved in accidents because of distracted driving. The researchers surveyed more than 2,000 consumers and business executives.

Travelers identified several different distractions that are common when people are driving. These include typing texts or emails at 44 percent; using social media at 23 percent; shopping online at 15 percent; and taking photos or recording videos at 22 percent. Some of the drivers in the survey reported that it would be hard for them to stop using their smartphones while they drive. Thirteen percent said it would be hard to avoid reading texts; 11 percent said that it would be hard to stop typing texts; and 19 percent said that they would continue to drive distracted even if it was against the law.

Being involved in an auto accident caused by the negligence of another motorist can be overwhelming. In addition to property damage, car accidents might leave innocent victims with life-changing injuries that require lengthy periods of expensive medical care and treatment, and many victims are unable to return to work, further worsening their financial situation. People who are in this situation might find it advisable to have an attorney’s assistance when seeking compensation for their losses.
