3 Apps to Prevent Distracted Driving in Teens
Distracted driving is a threat that most people don’t think about, but which kills thousands of people each year. Studies by the Centers for Disease Control found that in 2013, 18% of crashes that resulted in traumatic injuries were caused (at least in part) by distracted driving, which encompasses driving while talking on the phone, texting, watching TV, or doing anything else that takes your eyes off the road or hands off the wheel. Furthermore, this issue is on the rise – according to the CDC, 424,000 people were injured in car accidents that involved a distracted driver in 2013, which is almost 10% more than in 2011.
