One of the leading causes of vehicles crashes is distracted driving. With the advancement of cell phones, many young drivers traveling with multiple friends, and other potential distractions on the road, it is easy to see how something like this can cause serious collisions. Drivers should pay strict attention to the road, avoiding distracted driving for a number of reasons. Here are some reasons to consider before looking down at a phone or putting on makeup.
Distracted driving can result in serious, long-term injuries to all parties involved, including broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, lacerations, and more. This also means the distracted driver is liable to a potential lawsuit and may need to pay compensations for the damages he or she caused the other party or parties.
