Distracted driving can lead to reckless endangerment

Distracted driving can lead to reckless endangerment

On average, eight people lose their lives every day in the United States due to distracted driving. While mobile phone usage has been linked to distracted driving, these other activities can also significantly elevate risk:

  • Eating and drinking
  • Talking to passengers
  • Grooming
  • Reading, including maps
  • Using a navigation system
  • Watching a video
  • Adjusting a radio, CD player or MP3 player

To appreciate how perilous distracted driving can be, a person driving 55 mph will travel more than the length of a football field in only 4.6 seconds. 1 second will move you past the 20-yard line.

If your company has a fleet of vehicles or if employees use their own vehicles while on company business, share this information about distracted driving with them before they get behind the wheel. Otherwise, your company could be at risk of reckless endangerment.
