Many people believe drunk driving is the most dangerous thing you can do.
While the implications of drunk driving can be fatal and incredibly hazardous
for all in immediate vicinity, there are certainly other unsafe driving
conditions that people unfortunately partake in every day. If you are
wondering whether distracted driving is as dangerous as drunk driving,
the answer is yes.
What constitutes distracted driving? The number one reason behind this
major impairment is cell phones. With the advent of technology comes great
responsibility, and not every person who owns a cell phone is responsible
enough to be trusted with not using it while driving. Many people feel
texting and driving isn’t that big of a deal, nor is checking emails
or fiddling with other apps on their smartphone. The reality is, the number
one cause of teen accidents is due to distracted driving, likely caused
by cell phone use.
Despite people thinking they aren’t risking anyone’s life by
using their cell phone while on the road, they are sorely wrong. Anything
that takes your attention away from the road is an extremely dangerous
task and shouldn’t take place while you are in the driver’s
seat--such as any cell phone use, eating, using other electronics, putting
on makeup, and so on.
