The main cause of fatal auto accidents in the United States is distracted driving, a threat that continues to grow stronger year after year. Reports concerning driver negligence in the US show that over 400,000 car accidents are caused by distracted drivers every year. The main form of distracted driving is cellphone use, however, there are other distractions that are common among drivers:

  • Eating
  • Grooming
  • Reading
  • Applying makeup
