The Dangers of Distracted Driving

According to a report conducted and released by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), safety-critical events are as much as six times more likely to occur when a truck driver takes their eyes off the road to look down at their phones. These events include unintentional lane deviations, crashes and near-crashes. According to the data released by the FMCSA, the average person looks down for about 3.8 seconds when checking their phone – while traveling at highway speeds, this is enough time to travel the full length of an American football field, or 300 feet. Driving that far essentially blind could threaten the safety of everyone else on the road and cause serious injuries, including:

The FMCA has introduced a number of regulations (PDF) intended to restrict the use of mobile devices while on the road. Under these regulations, truck drivers are required to either press a single button when sending or receiving a message or phone call or use a hands-free system to interact with their phone. Even with these safety measures in place, reckless and negligent drivers can still choose to ignore these restrictions and put the lives of everyone else on the road at risk.
