The dangers of distracted driving

Motor vehicle wrecks may happen because a reckless driver is under the influence of alcohol or because they are inebriated for some other reason, such as consuming too much prescription medication or taking illegal street drugs. There are certainly many more reasons why motor vehicle accidents happen on a daily basis in New York, and distracted driving has become especially problematic thanks to smartphones. Aside from smartphones, there are all sorts of other reasons for distracted driving, including the consumption of food or beverages, reading a map, communicating with other people in the car or paying attention to something outside of the vehicle (such as an attraction or popular event). 

Whenever a driver becomes distracted and takes their eyes or mental focus from the road, they pose a risk to themselves and to everyone else they come across while driving. Sadly, they may cause an accident because they are not able to react to something in time or because they veer into another lane or off the road altogether. In some instances, people can walk away from a distracted driving accident unscathed, but these crashes can also leave people with serious injuries and even claim the lives of innocent people who pass away too soon.

Distracted drivers may try to make excuses for their behavior, whether they claim that they had to use their phone for work purposes or some other reason. However, no excuse can be made for a distracted driving crash that causes innocent people with injuries or worse.
