Distracted Driving

Auto Accident Lawyer in Columbia

There are many mistakes that can lead to a car accident. The car itself may be faulty and a mechanical error such as brakes going out can leave a driver unable to avoid a dangerous situation.

Weather can also play a factor when the rainy weather makes the roads slick. Still, there are many cases where an accident could have been avoided, had the individuals involved been more cautious. Distracted driving is one of the leading causes of vehicle accidents and it can occur in many ways.

Below are some of the most common forms of distracted driving:

  • Texting while behind the wheel
  • Making a phone call
  • Talking to passengers or even turning to look at them
  • Changing the radio
  • Applying makeup
  • Drinking or eating
  • Daydreaming
  • Looking somewhere other than the road

With long hours behind a car it can be easy to glance away from the road or start to feel too safe. The reality is that driving is a dangerous thing to do and it is critical that each person behind a wheel is exercising caution.
