Distracted Driving Accident Statistics

Each year, the National Safety Council (NSC) recognizes April as Distracted Driving Awareness Month. This time is meant to spread awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and help everyone promote safer roads everywhere. While the NSC has postponed this campaign due to COVID-19, there are absolutely still ways all of us can do our part in promoting safer roads.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports three types of driving distractions:

 
  • Visual distractions take your eyes off of the road

  • Manual distractions take your hands off of the wheel

  • Cognitive distractions take your mind off of the task of driving

 

Below are some distracted driving statistics to show just how serious these behaviors can be:
