Statistics on Distracted Driving
Residents of Lake County probably recall the 2009 death of a Lake Zurich motorcyclist, killed when she was struck at a traffic light by a driver painting her fingernails. Is this REALLY an accident. Distracted Driving is any activity that diverts a person’s attention away from driving. All distractions endanger the driver, the passengers, and other drivers and pedestrians. The choice is up to drivers and parents to take action to stop this epidemic from continuing to injury and kill innocent victims on our roadways. The most common types of distractions include:
- Cell phone use
- Eating and drinking
- Talking to passengers
- Using a navigation system
- Watching a video
- Adjusting a radio, CD player, or MP3 player
