Most drivers know what it’s like to have screaming kids in the backseat, the radio playing, and the persistent ring of a cell phone just out of reach. Unfortunately, our roads are a shared space, and every car is an opportunity for countless distractions. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2011, 3,331 people died and approximately 387,000 were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver. Seventeen percent of all injury crashes that same year involved some type of distraction. Accidents due to texting, setting a GPS, playing with the radio, and other diversions while driving are all avoidable.
