Distracted Driving Awareness Month takes place in April

The month of April is deemed National Distracted Driving Awareness Month in order to help remind drivers of the dangers of doing other tasks while driving.

A few typical distractions fall under the category of distracted driving and these include, texting, talking on a cell phone, talking to passengers, eating, drinking, reading maps, adjusting the stereo and more.

The most dangerous distraction has been said to be texting because it takes not only manual functioning, but also visual and cognitive senses that should be focused on the road. Data shows that people who text while behind the wheel are 23 times more likely to be involved in a car accident then drivers who are not texing behind the wheel.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident with a negligent driver, contact the Rhinelander accident lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., by calling 800-242-2874 today.
