Distracted driver study assesses frequency among parents

Nevada roads can be dangerous enough without the risk of distracted drivers. Unfortunately, as there are an increasing number of ways to be distracted, the problem has risen significantly. It is believed that younger people are more vulnerable to the temptation of using a smartphone when behind the wheel. However, a new survey has shown that parents are often distracted while behind the wheel.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration performed a survey that says there are more than 1,000 injuries and nine fatalities every day because of distracted drivers. In the survey, young parents are prone to using smartphones behind the wheel, despite the dangers involved. Surprisingly, older parents also text and drive at a troubling rate. The survey questioned 435 people regarding how often they texted, used social media, looked at maps and checked their email when behind the wheel.

More than 50% of those surveyed stated they drive safer when there are children in the vehicle. Two-thirds stated they used their device less when there were children in the vehicle.

After an auto accident, the medical costs, lost income and other problems can have a dramatic effect on a person's life. When there is a fatality, the family left behind will need to find a way to move forward. Having legal assistance to conduct an investigation and determine the cause of the accident is crucial. A law firm experienced in car accident cases can help a victim receive full compensation to cover their pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages and more.
