Distracted Driving on the Rise

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving results in over 5,000 deaths and over 20,000 injuries in the U.S. each year, and the problem is only increasing. Some common driver distractions, like sending text messages on a cell phone, are extremely dangerous. In fact, texting while driving poses such a risk that many U.S. states, including Georgia, have banned the practice altogether, issuing tickets to drivers who are caught doing it without needing to pull them over for a different violation.

Types of Driving Distractions in Georgia

Distractions can be split into three categories: visual, manual, or cognitive.

According to a study by the Gallup organization, approximately one-quarter of all distracted driving car collisions are caused by visual distractions, such as looking outside the car for landmarks, street signs, billboards, or other objects along the road. Even a split second of looking elsewhere can cause a crash.

In order to comply with cell phone driving laws, many drivers have switched to hands-free devices to talk on their cell phone while keeping both hands on the wheel. Unfortunately, this has only replaced manual or visual distractions with another. The NHTSA notes that using hands-free devices while driving does not cut down on cognitive or mental distractions because the driver's brain will still be focused on the conversation. When a driver pays less attention to the road, no matter what they are doing, they increase the chances of causing a serious collision.
