Doncaster, England -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/05/2015 -- A recent report from a popular newspaper has brought attention to some significant statistics regarding road traffic accidents and injury. Entering 2015, it has been reported that there has been up to a four per cent increase in fatalities and serious injuries on the UK roads. Factors attributed to the increase in serious injury included drivers being distracted by technology such as mobile phones.Using a phone whilst driving is illegal but gadgets and technology can still cause distraction when driving, even if they are not using them directly.
The correlation between distraction by technology and increased road-related injuries seemingly supports the suggestion that poor concentration is the primary cause of road accidents. And in the UK,the leading cause of death of those aged 15-29 years is road traffic accidents. Poor concentration, for any reason, means that people run the risk of causing injury through negligence – not paying full attention to their role as driver – thus putting themselves and others at risk.
