Distracted Driving Accidents Lynchburg VA
One of the biggest challenges that we face in Virginia with the ever-increasing use of technology in our lives is distracted driving. In 2018, distracted driving accounted for 18.5% of all accidents in Virginia. That means that over 24,000 accidents, that resulted in 126 deaths, was attributed to distracted driving. Cellphones are a leading cause of distracted driving. Young people are most likely to affected by cell phone use that attributes to distracted driving accidents, with the age group of 16-19 years old accounting for 21% of fatal accidents as a result of distracted driving.
In addition to cellphone use, the most common causes of distracted driving are:
- Visual Distraction– an example of this would be taking your eyes off the road to attend to kids in the back seat or any other activity that distracts a person’s attention from driving.
- Cognitive issues– an example of this is daydreaming, which takes your mind off driving.
- Manual Issues– These are things that require you to take your hands off the wheel, like texting, changing the radio or reaching for something in the car
While Virginia has passed laws that prohibit texting and driving, it continues to be a growing problem. Distracted driving leads to as many accidents as impaired driving, as distracted drivers are 23% more likely to cause an accident.
