Distracted Driving

The Dangers of Distracted Driving

Driving with distractions is a danger not only to the driver, but to their passengers and everyone else on the road. Any task that takes the driver’s primary focus away from the road, whether it requires visual, cognitive, or manual attention, poses a heightened risk for an accident that could result in serious injury.

There are several things that could distract a driver on the road, including:

  • Checking smart phones
  • Texting (a growing concern that is becoming responsible for more accidents all the time)
  • Reading GPS navigation systems or maps
  • Eating and drinking
  • Grooming and applying makeup
  • Adjusting the radio (or paying more attention to your music than the road)
  • Reaching for items
  • Rubbernecking

Distracted Driving Statistics

In the state of Texas in 2014, there were almost 101,000 traffic accidents involving distracted driving. Many of these accidents were caused by cell phone use and texting, the number one cause of distractions on the road. It is estimated that one in five crashes in Texas are caused by some form of distracted driving. Teens and other young drivers especially are at risk because they are inexperienced behind the wheel, and have the highest rate of accidents caused by distractions.

Even taking your eyes away for one moment can result in serious consequences to yourself and those around you. It is not worth placing yourself and others in danger to attend to things that can wait.

  • Thank you so much Daspit!!

    “Thank you so much Daspit!! You made the accident that I was in not so traumatizing. When I was hit by a person who was not from Houston and did not know downtown well he at first was sorry and admitted it was his fault until the cops showed up. From that point on I was in a panic until I entered your office and you guided me through.I recommend Daspit to anyone who wants to be treated with compassion and needs true guidance through the law.”
