The other day a guy on his cell phone swerved out in front of me...the worst part was that he NEVER even saw me!
My guess is that a lot of the people who are spending time texting and making calls are dealing with work related issues.
(And, of course, many are just idle chit chat).
These are the INCREDIBLE statistics that Jessie White, Secretary of State, had to share:
"Driver inattention is a major contributor to highway crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that at least 25% of police-reported crashes involve some form of driver inattention. Driver distraction is one form of inattention, and is a factor in more than half of these crashes.
Distraction occurs when a driver is delayed in the recognition of information needed to safely accomplish the driving task, because something within or outside the vehicle draws his attention away from driving. The presence of a triggering event distinguishes a distracted driver from one who is simply inattentive or "lost in thought."
Driver distractions or inattentive driving play a part in one out of every four motor vehicle crashes. That's more than 1.5 million collisions a year - more than 4,300 crashes each day!
Due to the increase in the number of traffic crashes resulting from drivers becoming distracted by today’s technological advances, compromising the safety of those using the roadways in Illinois, House Joint Resolution 22 was passed in 2007 creating the Distracted Drivers Task Force. The Task Force was commissioned to study the growing problem of distracted driving in Illinois, with particular attention focused on the impact of recent communications technology"
