What’s five times more dangerous than texting and driving?
What’s five times more dangerous than texting and driving?

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month and if you’re like us the first thing that comes to mind when you hear that is texting and driving.  We’ve all heard how dangerous that is.

But it’s not even close to being the most dangerous thing you do in the car.

According to a new study of fatal car accidents in the U.S., daydreaming and driving is five times more dangerous than texting and driving.

The study found that about 10% of the fatal car crashes in the U.S. in the past two years were caused by a distracted driver.  Of those accidents, 62% were a result of a driver who was just kinda lost in thought.  12% were a result of using a phone.

7% were caused by rubbernecking . . . 5% were from kids or passengers distracting the driver . . . 2% were caused by eating and drinking . . . 2% were caused by reaching for something . . . and 1% were caused by pets.

Our advice:  Keep your radio on!  Sing along and we’ll keep you from getting too lost in your head.
