Chicago, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/03/2013 -- A new study shows that every hour of the day, 3.7 people will die and 253 people will get injured in a car crash. The information, gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, claims that the risk for automobile accidents will continue to increase, especially as technology increases on the roads.
Distracted driving is a dangerous epidemic on America's roadways. In 2011 alone, over 3,000 people were killed in distracted driving crashes, inspiring several cities to ban the use of cell phones and other devices in vehicles, according to Distraction.gov.
YOUTH AND WOMEN AT BIGGEST RISK
Research from AAA claims that 1 out of 5 young drivers think that texting makes no difference to their driving performance. About 68 percent of young drivers 18 to 20 are willing to answer incoming phone calls on some, most, or all driving trips.
The use of cell phones, however, is linked directly to thousands of fatal car crashes a year. Car crashes rank among the leading causes of death in the United States.
“Electronic device use and other distracted driving behaviors were strongly associated with (teens’) looking away from the roadway,” as stated in the March 2012 study released by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “Females were twice as likely as males to be using an electronic device.”
