With the boom of new technologies in and outside of cars it’s rare that people focus on one thing at a time anymore. Many drivers, shockingly adult drivers especially, feel they can multi-task while driving, but the increase in distracted driving accidents proves otherwise (up 60% in the last 3 years for adult drivers alone.)
The following distractions are most common and cause the most accidents:
- Talking on the phone
- Animals in the car
- Operating electronics
